How will I receive emergency notifications if the power goes out?

We strongly encourage all residents to maintain in their home one hard-wired phone. In power outages and other major emergencies, cell phone systems have a higher likelihood of failure. Although many families feel the 'old phone' is an unnecessary expense, these phones often work when all else is lost.

CodeRED allows you to enter many phone numbers and email addresses to broaden the opportunities to be notified. Unfortunately, nothing is guaranteed and the severity of the emergency will impact any emergency notification system.
