Sign Up Today to Receive Urgent Messages
The City of Peoria has expanded the CodeRED Urgent messaging system, allowing residents to get text notifications or notifications through the CodeRED app. CodeRED is an emergency notification system by which public safety can notify residents and businesses by telephone or wireless phone about urgent and emergency situations. The system can send a message to a specific neighborhood or the entire City.
Once signed up for CodeRED, citizens can be notified by local emergency response teams in the event of emergency situations or critical community alerts. Examples include: evacuation notices, bio-terrorism alerts, law enforcement/fire emergencies, and missing child reports.
Most landline phones are in the system automatically, but residents need to register their wireless phones. Residents can sign up for this free text service by visiting www.peoriagov.org and clicking on the CodeRED logo, located at the lower right-hand side of the home screen.
Residents can also utilize CodeRED through the mobile app. Those who download the mobile app will receive notifications not only in Peoria County, but also anywhere they may be located when they have the location finder set on their phones. Information will be automatically pushed to them.
In order to use the app, users need to register their smartphone with a username / password. They can use the same username / password they created for their text alert notification sign-up on www.peoriagov.org
