The CodeRED and WeatherALERT systems give city officials the ability
to deliver pre-recorded emergency telephone notification/information
messages to targeted areas or the entire city at a rate of up to 60,000

not be called". The CodeRED system gives individuals and businesses the
ability to add their own phone numbers directly to the system's

No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is

People who have recently moved but kept the same listed or unlisted
phone number also need to change their address in the database.
"CodeRED gives those who want to be included an easy and secure
method for doing so. The information will only be used for emergency
