How often will I receive alerts?

You will receive alerts whenever there is a significant e vent that impacts any of the alert groups to which you have subscribed.  For example, if you sign up for the Romulus Water District group, any event in that district, that residents should be aware of, such as a water main break, will trigger an alert to you.

What is CodeRED and what is it used for?

CodeRED is a emergency notification service provided by OnSolve in partnership with the Town of Romulus.  It’s used to alert residents and businesses through a variety of channels of time-sensitive information, emergencies, or urgent notifications. The system can reach large numbers of individuals in minutes to ensure information such as evacuation notices, missing persons alerts, inclement weather advisories, and more are quickly shared.

Why should I register?

CodeRED is an important tool to help keep you informed and prepared for any emergencies that may occur in your area.  Officials will send messages to alert you of emergency details, instructions or precautions that you need to make well-informed decisions and remain safe.  This system is precise enough to geotarget residents within an exact area of impact, so only those who are affected by the situation are notified.

What types of alerts will I receive?

CodeRED will send notifications based on whichever focus groups you select.  This may include:

  • Chemical spills and HAZMAT incidents
  • Evacuation notices
  • Boil water and/or water outage notices
  • Highway events such as closures or construction activities

What do I do if I receive a message?

If you receive a CodeRED phone call, listen carefully to the entire message. You can repeat the message by pressing any key.  Do not call 911 for further information unless directed to do so, or you need immediate aide from the police or fire department.  If you receive a CodeRED email or text message, please be sure to read the entire message carefully and follow all instructions.

What if I missed a CodeRED phone call?

The CodeRED system will leave a message on your answering machine or voicemail if you miss a phone call. If you do not have an answering machine, the system will consider the call as “incomplete” and will attempt to call again after several minutes have passed. If your phone line is busy, CodeRED will try two more times to connect. At any point, you may re-dial the 800 number on your caller ID to hear a replay of the message sent.

How will I know when a message is from CodeRED?

A CodeRED message will have the caller ID # 866-419-5000 for emergencies and caller ID # 855-969-4636 for non-emergencies.  Your city/county also has the option of customizing their phone number to be local and will inform you what it is so you can save it as a contact in your phone.  If you need to replay the message received, you can dial this number and listen to the message again in its entirety.

I don’t remember my login information. How can I update my contact info?

If you used your Google, Facebook, or X account to sign up you will need to reset your password for those accounts within the respective sites.  If you created a unique username, first try the “forgot my password” option.  If you forgot your username as well, please reach out to client support at (866) 939-0911 (Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.) or email
