What is An Emergency Notification System
An Emergency Notification System is a system, which allows government entities to contact citizens in the event of an emergency in their area. The system has several different methods of contacting citizens including traditional residential landlines, business lines, voice pagers, VoIP or digital "cable" phones, and cell phones.

How Can I Be Certain I can be Contacted?

CodeRED® updates the System several times a year using multiple national phone listing databases.  If your phone number is unlisted, you have recently moved, or if you only have a cellular phone, we may not have your information. Even if you have a listed home phone number, you should still register. To add your contact information to the CodeRED® system go to Delaware County CodeRED®

Does Code Red Support TTY for the Hearing Impaired?
Yes. Please go to Delaware County CodeRED®. When completing the online form you must click on the TTY option on the bottom of the page. 

What Information Do I Need to Supply?
Since the CodeRED® system works on geographical location, you must enter your address, city, and zip code into the system.  This means that if there is an emergency situation in Delaware County or Delaware City, we can notify the residents in this area only.

Do I have to pay extra for CodeRED® service?

No. CodeRED® is entirely paid for by the Delaware County Commissioners

Does this mean the County will be calling me constantly?
No. Delaware County respects your privacy. CodeRED® will be used only when situations arise that you should know about.

What Will Show up on my caller iD?
You will know the call is from us when your Caller ID displays

866-419-5000 or Emergency Comm for Emergency Notifications 855-969-4636 or ECN Community for General Notifications

If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone, simply dial the number back.

Can I arrange to have CodeRED® call my place of business?
Yes. Please go to Delaware County CodeRED®.  When the Residential Data Collection form opens, click on the button labeled “Click to Switch to Business Data” and fill in the required information. Please note that emergency calls can only be delivered to a direct dial number. Automated attendants will disrupt the process and calls will not be delivered.
