How CodeRED® Works
The CodeRED® Emergency Telephone Calling System is an extremely high-speed telephone communication service available for emergency notifications. 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 emergency messages directly to homes and businesses at the rate of up to 60,000 calls per hour. CodeRED® subscribers control their emergency broadcasts from anywhere in the world via a secure Internet Portal.
CodeRed is for city of Huber Heights residents only. If you are outside the city limits you are not eligible for this emergency contact system.
Our residents and businesses are urged to click on the link "CodeRED Residential and Business Data Collection Page" to update contact information. Those without Internet access may come to City Hall offices, 6131 Taylorsville Road, Huber Heights, Ohio, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and fill out a form. Your data will be entered by City Staff.
Much of the database has been supplied to Emergency Communications Network, but no one should automatically assume his or her telephone number is included. All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, those who have changed their phone number or address within the last year, those who use a cellular phone as their home phone.
The CodeRED system is a geographical based notification system, which means street addresses are needed to select which telephone numbers will receive emergency notification calls in any given situation. The system works fine for cellular phones too, but requires a street address. People who have recently moved in the city but kept the same listed or unlisted number also need to change their addresses in the database. The information is used for emergency notification purposes only.
