The city of Brookfield has a new emergency notification system. Click to hear KMZU’s Kristie Cross talk to Emergency Management Director Jamie Stallo:
The service will be another tool in the city’s ability to keep their residents safe and informed. “This actually called CodeRED,” said Stallo,” It gives us the option to send out mass calls to anyone that is signed up within our city limits. We can use these for such things as tornado warnings, flash floods, other natural disasters, or missing children and things of that nature.”
The system allows for participants to receive the messages in a variety of manners. “Depending on how the user wants to register their account, it can go by call, text, or email,”said Stallo,” It’s a matter of preference and convenience.”
Those that have a landline that was registered with the previous system, will not need to take any action. Citizens wanting to add additional numbers to the free service may do so by contacting city hall or visiting this website.
