CodeRED is an emergency notification service that allows emergency officials to notify residents and businesses by telephone, cell phone, text message and email regarding time-sensitive general and emergency notifications. It is administered by the Village's 911 dispatch center, E-COM.

All residents are encouraged to enroll additional contact information, including cell phone numbers, text and email addresses and specify their notification preferences.
The Village cautions residents that such systems are only as good as the telephone number database supporting them. If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called. The CodeRED system gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's database, and that information is immediately available to Village officials to contact in case of emergency.
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. 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 will send phone calls to landlines and cell phones, as well as text messages and emails.
