Duluth Police Department Asks Duluth Residents To Sign Up For CodeRED

The Duluth Police Department launched iWatch some time back, and for whatever reason became CodeRED. The plan was to use it to be able to give more information to those that sign up. Now the Police Dept. is asking everyone in the Duluth area they serve to sign up now. This service will let you know when there is an emergency in your area you need to react to.

Everyone is familiar with the buzz on the radio and tv to alert you to trouble, and the siren for emergencies. This is another way to inform people in the Duluth area. To enroll you simply need to give your contact information and choose the ways you wish to be notified. The City has an initial database of residential and business telephone numbers but encourages more citizens to subscribe in order to take advantage of this free notification system and to stay informed.

The City anticipates using the system to notify residents in specific geographic locations of police and fire emergencies, public utility interruptions, disaster response, weather emergencies and other incidents where immediate public notice is needed. People that work in Duluth, but live outside the city boundaries, can sign up using their work address and will be notified of events impacting their workplace.

Duluth is very well known for bad storms and water main breaks, the CodeRED service will allow them to contact you over severe weather warnings, including tornado, severe thunderstorm, flash flood, and winter storm warnings. You will receive warnings only if you are in the impacted area identified by the National Weather Service. Strongitharm reminds citizens that the outdoor warning sirens are not designed to warn people indoors. Once subscribed to CodeRed you will receive a notification on your home phone, cell phone, receive a text, or get an e-mail when a situation warrants it.

The goal is to give residents multiple ways to receive warnings using the most effective tools available to residents in an emergency situation.

On December 2nd, a test call will go to all home phones and subscribed cell phones, e-mails, and text numbers.

If you have any questions about the system, or do not have a computer to subscribe, please call (218) 730-4394 for help.

After watching Storm Chasers and the floods we went through, this is a great opportunity to be forwarned if the emergency system horn or other warnings break down.
