The CodeRED emergency notification system is an extremely high speed telephone communication service that can deliver customized pre-recorded emergency messages directly to Galloway Township homes and businesses at the proven capacity of millions of calls per day. CodeRED also has high speed email and text messaging capability.

The CodeRED system incorporates a mapping tool that will allow Galloway Township Emergency Managers to send notifications to specific geographic areas by selecting them on a map. In addition with CodeRED we will be able to send notifications to predefined geographic areas of the township.

CodeRED has provided Galloway Township with a calling data base that includes the residences and businesses within the township. In addition Galloway Township’s CodeRED system allows Galloway residents and businesses to register two phone numbers and one email address to receive notifications. We urge all individuals and businesses to log onto the Galloway Township Community Notification Enrolment to add or update their contact information to ensure that they will be included when a message is sent.  The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes.   Those without Internet access may

CodeRED’s capabilities: 

Delivering messages to voicemail and answering machines
If a person does not answer the telephone, CodeRED will deliver the message in its entirety to voicemail and answering devices.
    
TTY/TDD Calling   
The CodeRED message can be delivered in text format to hearing impaired individual’s TTY/TDD equipment.   

Caller ID Last Number Call Back
Message recipients may dial the toll-free number displayed on their Caller ID to hear the last CodeRED message delivered to that phone number.

System redundancy
The stability of the CodeRED infrastructure is built upon triple redundancy. The ECN family of companies owns, operates and maintains its own equipment and dialers, which are collocated with our long distance providers in multiple “hardened facilities” around the country. As a result, CodeRED operates independently of, and without regards to, any situation that may exist with the business facilities or structures.
