Mayor Skudera Proclaims Code Red Week

Efforts to Promote Borough’s Emergency Notification System

Starting January 30th there will be a week-long effort by Tinton Falls to promote its borough-wide Code Red Emergency Notification System.  Mayor Skudera read a proclamation dedicating Code Red week as he was joined by police and emergency management personnel.

The Code Red system sends high-speed notifications to residents such as severe weather alerts to both landline and mobile phones. The system is fast and has the capability to quickly reach the borough’s residents and businesses. If a person is unable to answer the phone, Code Red will forward the message to their voicemail. The borough can also easily tailor messages such as a street closure or a water main break to a specific geographical area by using a simple point and click mapping tool.

To promote Code Red week and encourage residents to signup, Tinton Falls will have signs posted throughout the community and will be sending letters to residents and businesses.

Residents may sign up for the Code Red Emergency Notification System by clicking on the Code Red link located in the top left-hand corner of the homepage. Additionally, residents may sign up by calling the Tinton Falls Office of Emergency Management at 732-542-3400 extension 555.
