The Town of Fairfield has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license a new and improved high-speed phone notification system, CodeRED, which replaces Reverse 911 and provides Fairfield officials with the ability to quickly deliver phone messages to targeted areas or to the entire Town in emergency situations.
Town officials caution that such systems are only as good as the telephone number database supporting them. If a phone number is not already in the Town’s previous emergency notification database, then a resident or business will not be called. First Selectman Mike Tetreau said, “One of the reasons the CodeRED system was selected by the Town is that it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's database which is an extremely important feature.”
All businesses should register, as well as all residents who aren’t already in the system; have unlisted phone numbers; have changed their phone number or address within the past year; or who use a cellular phone or VIP phone as their primary number.
