The Surfside Police Department is pleased to announce the acquisition of the high speed, CodeRED emergency alert system. With the introduction of the CodeRED system, officials are now capable of delivering either Town-wide or targeted pre-recorded emergency telephone notification/or information messages, such as evacuation notices, missing child alerts, boil water notices, and fire or flood disasters.
CodeRED provides the community with greater protection during critical situations. Thousands of people can be alerted quickly and the controlled warning system ensures that every call provides consistent and accurate information. Other benefits include documented confirmation of the individuals selected, and the system has the ability to contact cell phones, send text messages and email. CodeRED reduces the demand on emergency personnel so that they may better focus and manage their response efforts.
Police Chief, David Allen explains “the CodeRED system is only as good as the database supporting it. If your phone number is not on the database it will not be called.” He further emphasizes that, “in an emergency situation, early notification can help save lives.” Chief Allen encourages all residents and business owners to register their phone numbers and assures everyone that the information will remain completely confidential and will only be used for emergency notification purposes.
To register your phone number into the database, please click on the CodeRED link below. This emergency network is a geographical based information system, which means street addresses are needed in order to select which phone numbers will receive the notification calls. Therefore, required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number.
If you do not have Internet access, please contact Dina Goldstein at 305.861.4862 extension 210, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., to register by phone. Any questions you may have about the CodeRED system may also be directed to Dina Goldstein, Monday to Friday, during regular business hours.
