CodeRED 

The City of Shelton has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides Shelton officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire city. The system will be active on July 1, 2013.

Code Red is only as good as the telephone number database supporting them. If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called. One of the reasons the CodeRED system was selected is it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's secure database.

All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number.

Registration can be done by going to www.sheltonpolice.net , clicking on ‘Emergency Notifications’ and then clicking on ‘CodeRed’. For people without Internet access they can stop in the police department and fill out the CodeRed form and the data will be entered in the system.

 

CTAlert

CTAlerts - We can't notify you if we can't reach you.The Shelton Police Department utilizes the State of Connecticut emergency notification system to notify those who live and work in the City of Shelton in the event of an emergency.  Residents may also sign up to be notified by the Shelton Police Department for routine notifications as well. 

 

On September 1, 2009, Connecticut became the first state in the nation to have a statewide emergency notification system. CT Alert ENS allows state and local officials to help protect lives and property by providing critical information to residents during emergencies, including dangerous situations.  

 

CT Alert ENS is managed by the State Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection.

The CT Alert ENS uses the state’s Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) database for location-based notifications to the public for life-threatening emergencies.  But the E9-1-1 database includes only traditional wire-line telephone numbers in the state (the “land line” phone you may have in your home).
