What if someone uses my address, and does not live with me?

This may happen, but will have no effect on how you receive emergency messages. CodeRED® is a phone number based system – if your phone number (text or e-mail) is included in the system, you will be called. 

The address is important because it allows emergency phone calls to target specific neighborhoods. For example, with a major storm, all phones regardless of their address will be called. However, if a water break requires one neighborhood to take water safety precautions, only those addresses affected can be called.
