- Town of Dennis-Code Red System

The Town of Dennis wants to take this opportunity to remind people of a rapid emergency notification service called CodeRED® which the Town and the Dennis Water District offer. The 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.

Code Red now has a new way to enroll, CodeRED Text to Enroll. With Text to Enroll individuals can text the keyword “Dennis” to 99411 and receive a response back containing a Community Notification Enrollment (CNE) link.
