Borough Gets New Emergency Notification System
West Pittston Borough Council announced during its regular monthly meeting April 7, 2015 that it has begun using the CodeRED emergency notification service to alert local residents and businesses of any concerns that may affect the safety or well being of the community. It includes AMBER alerts, evacuation notices, and warnings about traffic hazards.
In order to participate in the CodeRED program, residents must register phones and verify their location. This will ensure borough officials accuracy when targeting an incident in their neighborhood. Borough officials want to assure residents that all information submitted to the program will remain private and will only be used for community notifications.
To register, residents should log onto:
For registration help, call 1-866-939-0911.
Required information includes contact name, address, city, state and zip code as well as a phone number, and whether the property is a residence or business.
Once on the CodeRED page, residents will have their choice of contact message: phone or email. Once a resident signs up, a test message will be sent to the preferred method of contact.
