Reverse 911 Comes to Lynnfield – Town Selects CodeRED
The Town of Lynnfield and its two water districts – the Lynnfield Center Water District and the Lynnfield Water District – has contracted with Emergency Communications Network, Inc. (ECN) to license its “CodeRED” high-speed notification solution to bring Reverse 911 to Lynnfield. The CodeRED system provides Lynnfield officials with the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire town in the event of an emergency. The mass notification system will be used to notify residents of emergency situations or important municipal announcements via mass phone calls, texts, and e-mails.
ECN’s sophisticated network supports a web-based product suite featuring CodeRED. The high volume and high speed communication service employs a unique geographical-based system capable of dialing thousands phone numbers per hour. It can deliver the pre-recorded message to a live person or an answering machine. CodeRED will automatically include all listed numbers in the Town of Lynnfield. In order to supply cell phone numbers and e-mail addresses, all residents and businesses are required to log onto the Town of Lynnfield website at www.town.lynnfield.ma.us, and follow the link to the “CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment” page or use the link provided here:
