CLEVELAND, Ohio-- Cleveland is launching a mass notification system for residents, visitors and businesses.
CodeRED emergency alerts will be delivered to your cell phone, landline or email address. You'll be notified about emergency situations like severe weather, road closures, detours and more.
"The CodeRED system will give residents, visitors, and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into a database to receive emergency and non-emergency alerts,” said Alex Pellom, City of Cleveland Emergency Operations Center Manager. “If your phone number is not in the database, you may not be able to receive alerts. No one should assume his or her phone number is automatically included."
Users can sign up for which alerts they would like to receive. City officials launched the system now so visitors for the RNC can take advantage of it.
The City of Cleveland is encouraging people to register; you can also download the free CodeRED Mobile Alert app.
