Residents, commuters, and businesses are urged to sign up for emergency notifications
Mayor Jorge Elorza and Providence Emergency Management Director Michael Borg have announced today that the City will utilize the CodeRED Emergency Notification System to alert residents in emergency situations.
CodeRED is an emergency notification service that allows emergency officials to notify residents and businesses by telephone, cell phone, text message, email and social media regarding time-sensitive emergency information.
Types of emergency messages that people may be alerted to could be Amber Alerts, notifications of hazardous incidents, boil water advisories, evacuation notices, parking bans, and severe weather alerts.
Providence Emergency Management is encouraging residents, commuters and businesses to sign up for this system and download the free CodeRED app. The service is free and easy to sign up for. Simply visit the City of Providence website www.providenceri.com or the Providence Emergency Management website www.readyprov.com and click on the CodeRED feature.
