City gets new alert system

July 22, 2014

launched a new mass emergency notification system designed to alert residents of public safety threats, parking bans, dangerous weather, missing persons and other vital information.
The CodeRED system replaces another technology known as Nixle which had been in place for about two years.
“This is the future,” Emergency Management Director Tim Walsh told an audience of about 40 residents Tuesday at Kennedy Manor, urging them to sign up.
Walsh joined Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt, Police Chief Tom Carey, Fire Chief Paul Shatraw, Human Services Director Linda Plays and Deputy Asst. State Fire Marshal Michael Morin in announcing the activation of CodeRed in the community room of the high rise. A group of VISTA volunteers, armed with laptop computers, later assisted residents in signing up for the free alert service.
