CodeRed Community Alert System

When seconds count, you can count on the CodeRED high-speed community and emergency notification system. The CodeRED system provides the fastest delivery speeds in the industry. The CodeRED system has been battle tested, successfully relied upon and used by clients across the world during historic weather events and manmade disasters.

Automated Weather Alerts

Without any human intervention required, the CodeRED Weather Warning severe weather alert system delivers advanced warning of severe weather as soon as a bulletin is issued by the National Weather Service. The system delivers voice calls, text messages and emails to subscribed users within the direct path of the storm. Messages provide residents extra time to prepare that could save lives. Types of alerts include tornado warnings, severe thunderstorm warnings, flash flood warnings, tsunami warnings and winter storm warnings.

CodeRED Weather Warning interprets bulletins issued by the National Weather Service to determine the severity of the warning and the exact areas affected. The system then creates a calling database of all CodeRED Weather Warning subscribers within the projected path of severe weather. Instead of traditional county-based warnings, the system delivers targeted alerts to only those who may be affected, increasing relevance and reducing false alarm.

Mobile Alert Public Safety App

The CodeRED Mobile Alert public safety app gives clients the ability to reach residents and visitors within a specific geographic area using the location of their smartphones. The app delivers free emergency, community and missing person notifications from safety officials who rely on the CodeRED emergency notification software in their community. Any person with the CodeRED Mobile Alert app downloaded and is located within a specific warning area will receive a notification directly on their device, without the hassle of visiting a separate enrollment page. CodeRED Mobile Alert is available on the App Store and Google Play.
