CodeRED Emergency Alert System
The City of Springboro is now utilizing the CodeRED Emergency Alert System as an additional method to notify its residents and businesses of emergencies.
What CodeRED DoesCodeRED is a fast communication tool for emergency notification. When there is an emergency, the City determines which neighborhoods or areas are affected and creates a recorded message that describes the emergency and provides directions to the public. The high-speed dialer delivers the message at a rate of 60,000 calls an hour to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.
Register Your Phone NumberCodeRED will already reach the majority of residents who have a landline phone, so there should be no need to register that phone number. However, the City encourages citizens to register their phone number if:
- You have moved or changed your phone number in the last 6 months
- You have an unlisted phone number
- You use your cell phone as your primary phone number
- You use TDD/TTY equipment
- You are a business (Businesses are not automatically on CodeRED calling lists)
Cell Phone & Other NumbersIn addition, you may register your cell phone number or work number for back-up so you will still receive the CodeRED alert if you cannot be reached at home. Pagers cannot receive CodeRED emergency alerts.

Business RegistrationWhen there is an emergency in your area, don’t be kept out of the loop. Register your business by selecting address type as "Business" and enter your phone number(s). The information collected will remain completely private and will only be made available to notify you of critical situations.
