 CodeRED Emergency Notification

Seconds Count in an Emergency - Make Sure the Town Has Your Phone Number

The Town of Carrboro (in conjunction with the Town of Chapel Hill and the Orange Water and Sewer Authority) has instituted CodeRED - a high-speed, emergency notification service. Town officials now can deliver pre-recorded emergency messages by telephone to targeted areas or to the entire town in case of an emergency that requires immediate action.

The system can handle up to 60,000 calls per hour and delivers messages to a live person or to an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to a phone number.

To add your phone number or an alternate phone number - including cellular phone numbers - click HERE or on the CodeRED image.

CodeRED Emergency Notification

All businesses are encouraged to register their phone numbers.

Residents should also register if:

  • They have unlisted phone numbers.
  • They have changed their phone numbers or their addresses within the last year.
  • They use cellular phones as their primary home phones.

CodeRED is a geography-based system that uses street addresses to select which phone numbers will receive emergency notification calls. No post office box numbers will be accepted.

This system will only be used for emergency purposes.
