Emergency Notification System
CodeRED®Emergency Notification System is a service by which municipal officials can notify residents and businesses in West Side Regional EMA, including the Borough of Wyomissing, by phone, email, or via in-app notifications, about emergency situations or critical community alerts. The system is capable of sending messages only to people affected by a particular situation, or, in the case of a widespread emergency like severe weather, to the area’s entire population. The speed of the CodeRED® system (up to 50,000 calls per hour) is so great that municipal officials are able to send a message to affected households almost as quickly as officials become aware of the situation. We encourage all our residents who have smartphones to download the app. The app enables us to send notifications to only those citizens in the affected area of the alert, reducing false alarms. The app is available for a free download on the iTunes store and Google Play. An enhanced feature of the app allows registered participants to see active alerts for the entire country within a 5,000 mile radius of your current location.
