Emergency Preparedness

This site provides useful links to information dealing with disasters and non-fire emergencies. The effort spent preparing for events such as tornadoes, severe storms, excessive heat and other hazards often determines how well one is able to withstand such an incident. One thing is for sure, the time to prepare is before the event - not during the event. We hope you find these links helpful.

Be sure to check out our pages "Outdoor Warning Sirens/Emergency Text Notification", "PulsePoint" and "Brochures & Information" for more preparedness information 


The CodeRED Emergency Notification System is a high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows the dispatcher to telephone all or targeted areas of the City in case of an emergency situation that necessitates immediate action.

The system is capable of dialing 50,000 phone numbers per hour. It delivers a recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.

Enter your contact information to sign up for notifications at CodeRED's website.

Preparedness is the key. Preparing before the emergency happens is always the best course of action. To learn about preparedness activities for almost any emergency for your home or at work, check out FEMA's website that helps you plan for the next disaster!    https://www.ready.gov/Outdoor warning siren
