In January of 2012, the City of Reidsville implemented its emergency communications system, CodeRED.
Residents are probably already familiar with CodeRED, which is used by Rockingham County to broadcast Amber Alerts and other information. Similar telephone notifications are also used by the school system to inform parents of upcoming school events or emergency situations.
The system is voice activated. The recipient must say “Hello” before the message will be relayed.
Reidsville citizens can log onto the City’s website and get their home or cell phone numbers included in the database.
For those residents without Internet access, they may call City Hall at 336-349-1030 to supply their information over the phone. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code and primary phone number. Additional phone numbers can be entered as well. Forms detailing this information will also be available at City Hall, both in the City Manager’s Office and at the Customer Service windows where water bills are paid.
Again, the program can be utilized by both residences and businesses. If you have an unlisted phone number, have changed your phone number or address within the past year or use a cell phone or VoIP phone as your primary number, you should register for the alerts. Multiple telephone numbers can be attached to a single physical address, but residents cannot have multiple residences linked to one phone. Both IPhones and Android phones also have a CodeRED app available.
