Code Red Registration


The Town of Dennis has instituted a new rapid emergency notification service called CodeRED®. The new system will distribute emergency messages via telephone to targeted areas in Dennis or the entire town.

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 prerecorded emergency messages directly to homes, businesses, cell phones and answering machines.

By registering, you’ll be added to the emergency call list.

This service can be used in case of storms, natural disasters, fires, chemical spills, evacuations, lock downs, downed power lines, lost individuals, abductions, messages from the Dennis Water District regarding water system problems or alerts, bomb threats, or other emergencies. Calls can be geographically targeted for localized messaging.

Dennis residents and businesses are welcome and encouraged to enter their contact information for home, business, and mobile/cell phones so they may be contacted by the system in the event of an emergency. It is important for Dennis residents and businesses to register, especially if they use unlisted numbers, cell phones, TDD/TTY 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. You can even create an account at CodeRED, which is optional.

Those without internet access may call Dennis Police Department’s Victim Services Coordinator at 774-352-1474 to supply their information over the phone. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, NO Post Office Boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number, additional phone numbers can be entered as well. You may also add your email address.
