CodeRED® subscribers control their emergency broadcasts from anywhere in the world via a secure Internet Portal.

CodeRed is for Village of Arcanum residents whom are on Arcanum Water and Light.

Business Tasks

Much of the database has been supplied to Emergency Communications Network, but no one should automatically assume his or her telephone number is included. All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, those who have changed their phone number or address within the last year, those who use a cellular phone as their home phone.

Notes for System Use

The CodeRED system is a geographical based notification system, which means street addresses are needed to select which telephone numbers will receive emergency notification calls in any given situation. The system works fine for cellular phones too, but requires a street address. People who have recently moved in the city but kept the same listed or unlisted number also need to change their addresses in the database. The information is used to keep Arcanum residents informed.
