The City of Blue Island is pleased to announce implementation of its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire City within minutes. A pre-recorded message is delivered describing the critical situations from evacuations to missing child alerts.
A calling database has been created by capturing home phone information from the City’s 911 Data and other public record sources. CodeRED has the capability of providing emergency information to cell phones via text messages and e-mail messages to those residents that may or may not be home at the time of an emergency.
All businesses should register, as well as all residents who have unlisted phone numbers or have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number.
If you would like to receive CodeRED emergency messages via voice, text and/or e-mail, you may register by clicking the link: Community Notification Enrollment.
