Code Red

The City and County of Peoria have implemented an Emergency Notification System. This is a high speed notification system capable of notifying up to 50,000 citizens an hour of a important message. The system will deliver the message to telephones and leave a message, if necessary. It can also send a text message to a wireless phone. The system can make notifications to a certain geographical area or the entire County.

The system may be used for missing persons, evacuations, hazardous chemical spill, large fires, flooding, snow, hostage or police emergencies, or other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification to the public is essential.
