This alert, known as an “All Call”, will familiarize users with the CodeRED notification process and ask users to reach out to friends and family who have not yet added their contact information to the database. The City of Cleveland is encouraging all residents and businesses to go to the City of Cleveland’s website (http://www.city.cleveland.oh.us) and click on the CodeRED logo located on the right side of the page.

If you are already signed up, check your contact information, including additional phone numbers, and text and email addresses, to ensure all of the data in our system is accurate and current.

Users can sign-up for which alerts they would like to receive and the notifications can be sent to a cell phone, landline, or email address. In addition to emergency alerts, the City of Cleveland will be offering non-emergency messages on various city service interruptions. The CodeRED system has the ability to utilize Geographical Information System (GIS) technology to strategically deploy notifications

The City of Cleveland implemented the CodeRED system earlier this year to quickly deliver alert messages regarding emergency situations (severe weather) or city service interruptions (road closures) to residents.

Residents, visitors, and those who work but do not live in Cleveland are encouraged to register and download the free CodeRED Mobile Alert app.
