Rapid Notification System - Register Now
CodeRed Alert System
Ewing Township has instituted a new rapid notification service called CodeRED®. The new system will distribute informational and emergency messages via telephone to targeted areas or the entire county at a rate of 1,000 calls per minute. CodeRED® employs a one-of-a-kind internet mapping capability for geographic targeting of calls, coupled with a high speed telephone calling system capable of delivering customized pre-recorded messages directly to homes and businesses, live individuals and answering machines.
If you have already registered your contact information through the old system, Global Connect, there is no need to re-register. However, if you are not sure if you did or not you can register through CodeRED® and you should only be contacted once if a notification is sent. CodeRED® always de-duplicates by phone number.
By registering, you’ll be added to the emergency call list.
This service can be used for general information and in case of fires, chemical spills, evacuations, lock downs, downed power lines, lost individuals, natural disasters, abductions, water system problems, bomb threats, or other emergencies. Calls can be geographically targeted for localized messaging. If widespread, the entire community could be called within 20 to 30 minutes. The system also reports who did not get a call so that they may be contacted by other means.
Ewing residents are welcome and encouraged to enter their contact information for home, business, and mobile phones so they may be contacted by the system in the event of an emergency. It is important for city residents and businesses customers to register, especially if they use unlisted numbers, cell phones, or VOIP. Those who do not register their address and phone number may not be notified with CodeRED in the case of an emergency. Registration is confidential, free, and easy.
