CodeRED

The City of Miramar has instituted the CodeRED Emergency Notification System. CodeRED is a super high-speed telephone dialing system for notifying citizens of emergency conditions. CodeRED allows emergency management personnel to telephone the entire or specifically targeted areas of the city to inform citizens of an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as a boil-water notice, missing child, or evacuation notices).

CodeRED can dial up to 50,000 phone numbers per hour and delivers a recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.

Registering for CodeRED
The following information is required to add a telephone number into the CodeRED database: first and last name; address (physical address, no P.O. boxes); city; state; Zip Code; and primary phone number. A primary phone number is most likely the identified home phone number. An alternate phone number, such as a mobile phone, can also be entered and both the primary and alternate line will be contacted in the event of an emergency. The system works with cellular phones but requires a City of Miramar street address.

Online Registration
When entering information, please fill out all of the screens because the newest data entered will replace the old data; this would include the notifications you’d like to receive as well. So, if you’d like to change the weather warnings you are signed up for, you simply resubmit your information through the Community Notification Enrollment page. For those who are hearing impaired, the sign up form offers a TDD only option for tone delivery of emergency messages. Messages delivered to phone numbers marked TDD will only be delivered in a TDD/TTY format. Residents without Internet access may visit any of the Counties public libraries to use a computer to register. 

CodeRED Purpose
This system will be used for emergency purposes or notification of information considered to be vitally important. Examples of times when the CodeRED system could be utilized: drinking water contamination, utility outage, evacuation notice, missing person, fires or floods, bomb threat, hostage situation, chemical spill or gas leak, and other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for life safety.
