CODE RED is an interactive internet based community emergency mass notification system, which enables a recorded telephone message to be sent out to selected areas, blocks, neighborhoods, or the entire Village using geographical data. These messages can be used to notify residents and businesses of immediate public safety issues such as hazardous materials incidents, evacuation orders, large fires, burglaries, lost or missing persons, boil orders, and many other public safety emergency situations. This system would not be used for severe weather warnings.
The CODE RED system is internet based and has the ability to deliver approximately 60,000 calls per hour based on a 30 second customized message. That means that the Fire or Police Department has the capability of delivering this message to every business and household in the Village in less than 5 minutes.
All land line telephones in Village residences and businesses are automatically included in the CODE RED system data base. This system also has the capability of adding other telephone numbers such as work numbers and cellular telephone numbers to the data base.
Clarendon Hills residents or businesses can add their cellular telephone number or any other telephone number to be contacted in an emergency to the Code Red system.
