The Town of Wilton utilizes the Code RED Emergency Notification System for the distribution of recorded telephone messages from the First Selectman and/or Wilton public safety departments. Messages are generally distributed when emergency conditions exist or to update residents regarding important information after significant storms. It would also be used if an emergency evacuation or shelter in place situation was necessary.
There are two ways that telephone numbers are added to the database:
- ONSolve, the company that owns the Code RED System has access to the published home telephone numbers in our community and includes them in our emergency notification database.
- Residents can sign up here to receive the Code RED messages.
Residents should consider adding cell phone numbers of all family members to Code RED to ensure that emergency messages are received in the event they do not have a landline telephone, are not at home when the emergency message is distributed, do not have voicemail, and/or landline telephone service is disrupted.
Residents who do not want to receive recorded Code RED notifications may opt-out here.
