Emergency Alerts


Code Red

The  City of Norwalk uses the Code Red Notification service for emergency alerts. This service allows authorized civic leaders (Mayor's Office, Fire, Police, DPW)  to create and rapidly disseminate time-sensitive messages to every telephone number stored in the notification database. With the Code Red service, authorized users can send thousands of messages in minutes. Only authorized officials are allowed access to the system. 

How does the service work?

Authorized officials record a voice message that is then delivered quickly to individual phones in the notification database. Messages regarding the safety or welfare of our community would be disseminated using the Notify Norwalk service. Examples would include:
  • Hazardous traffic or road conditions inside the city or affecting local routes
  • Severe weather warnings and updates
  • Situations that could impact the safety, property, or welfare of our citizen 

    Add Your Contact Information

    The Code Red notification service uses publicly available data (white pages) to develop the database. Residents can also add mobile phone numbers to receive calls or text messages as well as emails. If you have an unlisted number or use Voip, you will not be in the database to receive calls unless you opt in.

    To add your contact information to the Notify Norwalk database, please visit the CodeRed, enrollment service provided by the Emergency Communications Network (ECN).
