CODE RED – The City’s Mass Notification System

Posted On: November 4, 2015 l Full Article

The City of Watervliet has transitioned to an updated version of our previous mass notification system.  Any subscribers from our previous system were loaded into the new system.  There is a link on the home page of this website as well as the City’s website at  Users can update their information by clicking on the CODE RED logo and you will be directed to the site for registration.  The system allows for notification through phone (including cell), email and text.  As most of our residents know, we use the system predominantly for snow emergency declarations, however, the system can be utilized and activated for any public notification.  If you are a LANDLORD, it would be very helpful for you to ensure that your tenants are also aware of this program.  We are not in the business of towing cars during the winter, but public safety measures require that we clear roadways and streets to ensure that emergency apparatus has sufficient access to respond to any residence for assistance.  If you no longer wish to participate in the program or do not live in the City any longer and wish to unsubscribe to the notifications, please call 270-3815 and you will be assisted with unsubscribing.  The program is free.
