Code Red Registration
The City of Centerville uses CodeRED as an additional method to notify its residents and businesses of emergencies. CodeRED is a fast communication tool for emergency notification. When there is an emergency, the City determines which neighborhoods or areas are affected and creates a recorded message that describes the emergency and provides directions to the public. After the message is confirmed, the high-speed dialer delivers the message at a rate of 50,000 calls an hour to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number. CodeRED will already reach the majority of residents who have a landline phone. However, the City encourages residents and all businesses to register their cell phone number.
