CodeRED is a service that enables municipalities to contact its citizens directly during an emergency situation and deliver specific instructions for how to deal effectively with emergency situations. This service has been used by other local governments to warn residents of natural disaster, hazardous spill situations, and public health notifications as well as to alert the public to missing persons.
13 local municipalities and townships, the MVCC CodeRED group, have subscribed to the service through the Miami Valley Communications Council. The CodeRED system uses GIS and database technologies and a high-speed dialer to allow public safety officials to select a population, create a message and deliver the message to the affected populace. This system quickly alerts the public to emergency situations that require immediate action (such as a boil-water notice, missing child or evacuation notices).
THIS SYSTEM WILL BE USED FOR EMERGENCY PURPOSES ONLY
