MANCHESTER-BY-THE-SEA — Police Chief Todd J. Fitzgerald would like to announce that the Town of Manchester-by-the-Sea has added the “text to enroll” program to the OnSolve (CodeRED), the Town’s Emergency Communication System.
All residents and businesses are invited to register for the CodeRED notification system to receive alerts and updates during emergency events.
Sign up is available either online or on a mobile device, allowing users to receive notifications about missing children or persons, criminal activity, fires, drinking water contamination, utility outages, traffic conditions, various threats to people or the environment, and other incidents as deemed necessary by town public safety officials.
“We encourage all residents in town to take advantage of the CodeRED notification system,” Chief Fitzgerald said. “This easy-to-use system will allow residents to receive important alerts directly on their mobile devices, which will allow us to reach a significant percentage of the population in an instant in the case of an emergency.”
To enroll online, visit the Manchester-by-the-Sea-specific CodeRED webpage here.
To enroll on a mobile device, text MBTS to 99411 to receive a direct link to the enrollment form.
To create an account, users will be asked to either log-in via Google, Facebook or Twitter, or create a separate account with a unique username and password. On the next page users will be asked to enter their name, address, phone number, mobile provider, email address and which types of alerts they would like to receive (emergency or emergency/general).
After agreeing to terms and conditions and verifying contact information, users will be successfully enrolled in the program.
