The Town of Tyngsborough has acquired the CodeRED® Emergency Notification System. CodeRED® uses telephone, text and e-mail to quickly provide instructions to residents and businesses on how to prepare for, or otherwise deal with, an emergency situation.
The system will be activated for emergency public safety messages and important public notifications. Alerts may include, but are not limited to:
- Extreme weather
- Missing and endangered persons
- Evacuations and lockdowns
- Water emergencies
- Chemical spills or release
- Security alerts
This high-speed telephone and text messaging system can contact the entire Tyngsborough database in less than 30 minutes. If you are not home, CodeRED® will leave a message on most answering devices. The system allows Tyngsborough to contact all residents and businesses or limit the notification to a small geographic area.
The database used by CodeRED® is a combination of published white page listings, Enhanced 911 data and information provided by residents or business owners. To ensure that your phone number is registered (or to add text, e-mail or additional phone numbers) please click on the logo and follow the instructions.
The system is easy to use but ask a friend or neighbor if you are having difficulty entering your emergency contact information. Internet access is available at the Tyngsborough Public Library and staff at the Tyngsborough Senior Center are available to assist.
