CodeRED Emergency Notification Services
The Town of Bolton has implemented a new high-speed emergency notification service called CodeRED. This service will allow Town officials to quickly deliver emergency messages to Bolton residents and businesses.
CodeRED can be used by Town Officials to send critical, time-sensitive communications in an event of storm-related emergencies, evacuations, hazardous materials spills, lock downs, downed power lines and missing persons or other emergencies.
The system can geographically target specific areas for localized alerts. Notifications can be sent to certain areas of Town or the entire population of Bolton, depending on the need. The system can reach every household in Town within a few minutes and also report who did not get a call so that they may be contacted by other means.
All Bolton residents and businesses are welcomed and encouraged to enter contact information for their home, business, and mobile phones so they may be contacted by the system in the event of an emergency.
Those who do not register their address and phone number may not be notified with CodeRED in the case of an emergency. Text and email accounts can also be registered. Registration is confidential, free and easy.
