"This system provides an opportunity for residents and business owners to be notified in the event that an emergency situation exists that impacts them or their area," said Bill Van Helden, Cape Coral's Fire Chief and Emergency Management Director.
"It also provides another valuable communications tool for emergency management agencies."
The CodeRED system not only offers faster calling rates and improved message delivery, it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly to the system's telephone database.
If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called.

"The information supplied only will be used for emergency notification purposes," said Van Helden
