Thornton to send message through CodeRED system

Posted

Thornton residents that have signed up for the ciyt’s CodeRED emergency notification system should expect a test message to arrive at 7 p.m. July 27.

It’s part of the city’s effort to ensure community safety, according to a written statement July 18.

CodeRED is public safety’s primary mechanism for warning residents of potential and/or actual emergencies such as wildland fires, floods, tornadoes, law enforcement activity, evacuations, and water utility outages.

“The CodeRED test will involve a call, text and email to residents who have registered their cellphone numbers, landlines or email addresses in the system,” Thornton Emergency Manager Ryan Doyle said in the press release. “The test will provide critical training for dispatchers and improve the readiness of residents by increasing awareness of emergency messaging and promoting sign-ups for the notification system.”

The Thornton Fire Department, the Thornton Police Department, and the Thornton 9-1-1 Dispatch Center are all participating in the test.

“A disaster can happen at any time anywhere, and residents can take steps to be informed when disasters strike,” Doyle said. “The Marshall Fire in Boulder was a terrible incident, and a reminder of the importance of being well informed of an event in your area and how timing can save lives.”
