FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Village of Terrace Park Implementing New
Emergency Notification System
Following an extensive and thorough evaluation and review of alerting systems, the Village of Terrace Park is implementing the CodeRED system, a high-speed emergency notification service.
The CodeRED system will serve as the foundation for the Town’s emergency planning and communications outreach to both citizens and Village personnel. This system is able to send telephone calls, text messages, emails and social media in an effort to effectively inform residents to protect life and property or just let you know about a street closing. CodeRED, among other notification systems available, was selected for its unrivaled reliability and accuracy.
“CodeRED’s robust system will provide Village officials with a reliable, easy-to-use interface to quickly disseminate critical information to our citizens during emergencies. We are very eager to use this technology to enhance our emergency preparedness plans,” said Police Chief Jerry Hayhow. “The system is easy to use and easy to update, so we can get information out quickly and accurately.”
The Village of Terrace Park has been provided an initial database of residential and business telephone numbers; however, all residents living within the Village of Terrace Park limits are encouraged to visit terracepark.org and click on the CodeRED logo to enroll additional contact information including cell phone numbers, text and email addresses. You can enroll all family members or just one. It is especially important for you to update information if you did not receive a phone call on February 22 notifying you of the new system.
Public safety officials across the United States have credited CodeRED notifications for many successful events including locating missing children, apprehending wanted criminals and issuing timely evacuations. “The system will be the most comprehensive one we’ve seen, but we need our citizens to make sure our information is complete and accurate.”
If you have any questions at all, please call Hester Sullivan in the Village Office 513-831-2138 (10:30 – 2:30 M-F).
