The city of Aurora has a new emergency alert provider, CodeRED, and it’s a great time to add your contact information to the system in order to receive important, even life-saving, alerts sent directly to your phone and/or email.
In an emergency -- whether it is a hazardous material spill, severe weather, evacuation order or other critical incident -- receiving information in a timely manner is essential. But many people, such as those who no longer have landline phones, may not receive these notifications unless they opt in. To make sure you get the information you need, when you need it, click on the button below to sign up for CodeRED alerts. You can choose to receive notifications via landline, cellphone, email, text message, TTY, or a combination. These alerts can be specific to streets, neighborhoods or regions, so by providing an address, you will receive only those notifications that are most important to you.
