City Upgrades Emergency Notification System to CodeRED

– Residents who are subscribers to the existing system must register for the CodeRED system to continue to receive alerts after September 16. – 

The Piedmont Police and Fire Departments are now offering Emergency Notifications through a system called CodeRED.

This new system utilizes telephone calls, email, text messages, and/or a mobile app to notify residents of emergencies and other public safety related news. Residents who register for the City’s CodeRED emergency notification system will receive notices regarding public safety situations, major street closures, planned power outages, and other emergency situations at the same time information is sent to the press.

The City of Piedmont provides this service to residents at no charge. Residents are encouraged to visit the City’s web site at and click on the CodeRED Emergency Notifications item for a link to register. Registration is simple. All you need is your name, address, and phone number. Residents who do not have access to the internet may call Barbara MacLean at the Piedmont Fire Department at (510) 420-3028.

The CodeRED alert system will be launched with a City wide notification. The City will conduct a test alert using a telephone voice recorded message. This message will provide our residents with information regarding CodeRED, and instructions on how to register to receive emergency alerts.

The City’s existing Public Safety Dispatches email notifications will be discontinued on September 16, 2013. Residents who are subscribed to the existing system must register for the CodeRED system to continue to receive alerts.

This information is provided by the City of Piedmont.
