CodeRED Alert Test
On Wednesday, November 17, 2021, at 10:00 a.m., Carlisle Borough and its emergency notification service provider, CodeRED, will conduct what is known as an “All Call” test of the Borough’s emergency notification system. This test will send a notification to all numbers in the Borough’s current emergency notification database.
The CodeRED test shows the Borough how quickly notifications are delivered to the entire community in case of an actual emergency. In the weeks after the All Call test is completed, CodeRED will remove non-working numbers from the Borough’s database, which will help increase the speed and connection rate of future alerts.
What can a Borough resident or business expect to hear from CodeRED during the test? If your correct phone number is in the emergency notification database, you will receive a phone call from the CodeRED Emergency Notification System. The number that will be displayed on your caller I.D. will be 1-866-419-5000. You will hear a pre-recorded message about the CodeRED system. If you are unable to answer your phone, you will receive a voicemail with that same message. If you are signed up to receive text messages and/or e-mails, you will receive those as well during the test.
Residents and businesses can register using this link: https://public.coderedweb.com/CNE/en-US/43D5CBE75307. Individuals can also text “Carlisle” to 99411 to sign up on their mobile devices.
CodeRED is a free service meant to keep the citizens of Carlisle Borough informed. Once someone registers for CodeRED, they will be notified of emergency and general information through phone calls, text messages, and e-mails. These alerts may include, but are not limited to: boil water notifications, emergency street closures, missing persons, and evacuation notices. CodeRED will keep the contact information of its subscribers private and will only use the information for those notifications initiated by the Borough.
