The CodeRED website is secure. All data entered into the database is used exclusively by the Town of Lexington. The information will not be shared. All data entered onto the website will be inspected once by a Lexington public safety official to ensure that the information is Lexington-based. As a general rule, any phone number attached to a non-Lexington address or an invalid Lexington address will not be accepted. When the information is approved, it is then sent to the database.
The security of this information is critical to the success of an emergency notification system. There is no feature within the system that allows a list of phone numbers to be printed. The use of all data in this system is controlled by federal regulations and by contract with the vendor.
