The Town of Webster has contracted with Onsolve to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides Webster officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire town.
If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called. One of the reasons the CodeRED system was selected is it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's database, this is an extremely important feature.
No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included. We urge all individuals and businesses to visit the "CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment" page.
All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who 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.
How it Works
CodeRED allows geographically based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency notification calls are received by the proper individuals in a given situation. The system works for cell phones too, but we need to have an associated street address to provide relevant messages.
CodeRED gives those who want to be included an easy and secure method for inputting information. The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes.
Types of Notifications
The system will be activated for emergency public safety messages and important public notifications. Alerts may include, but are not limited to:
- Evacuations and lock downs
- Extreme weather
- Missing and endangered persons
- Security alerts
- Water emergencies
