Frequently Asked Questions

How will I benefit from this service?

This high-speed telephone system will allow the Town of Raymond to contact residents to provide information about a critical situation, what action needs to be taken, and notification that the situation has been resolved.

 What do I have to do to receive this benefit?

The database already has a large number of Raymond residential numbers; however, if you have not yet received a CodeRED message you may need to add yours.

How does it work?

CodeRED delivers the important message through a high-speed telephone calling system to a phone number on the CodeRED database. Police staff will access CodeRED via a secure portal on the web. A “call area” will be marked identifying street addresses. Telephone numbers will be matched up electronically to these addresses through the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS). A pre-recorded message will be sent out via the telephone with information about the incident and possibly instructions for action to be taken.

 What should I do if I receive a CodeRED message?

* Listen Carefully

* Follow Instructions

* Don’t hang up until you hear the whole message

(the message will not be repeated)

* DO NOT call 9-1-1 unless instructed to do so (You will only tie up emergency lines)

 Will the system work with cell phones?

Yes. But, your cell phone number needs to be associated with your Town of Raymond address. We encourage you to register your cell phone number.

What is CodeRED used for?

CodeRED will be used for significant incidents and events where the timely notification is needed.

 How Do I Register?

The following information is required to add a telephone number into the “CodeRED” database: first and last name; address (physical address); city; state; Zip Code; and primary phone number. A primary phone number is most likely the identified home phone number. An alternate phone number, such as a cell phone, can also be entered and both the primary and alternate line will be contacted in the event of an emergency. The system works with cellular phones but requires a Town of Raymond address. When entering information, please fill out all of the screens because the newest data entered will replace the old data.

 For those who are hearing impaired, the sign up form offers a TDD ONLY option for tone delivery of emergency messages. Messages delivered to phone numbers marked TDD will only be delivered in a TDD/TTY format.

 Residents without Internet access wishing to add numbers may call the Raymond Police 603-895-4747.
