The Village of Freeport now uses CODE RED to alert residents and businesses in times of emergency with a phone call directly to you.
The Emergency Management Office is using the system for notification of pending or existing emergency situations. The system will call the geographic area in the Village needing the notification. The Village may also be sending out friendly reminders to residents living in low-lying areas when there are astronomical high tides during full moons. Other potential uses involve Village agencies calling the public for water or sewage shut-offs, snow emergencies, upcoming construction and detours, hydrant flushing, missing children, Alzheimer's patients, crime alerts, etc.
The CODE RED Notification System is built to identify a select group of phone numbers, call the number, and play a pre-recorded message giving emergency instructions to whom ever received the message
Caller ID – When you see 866-419-5000 displayed, you will know the call is from the Village of Freeport. If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone, simply dial the number back.
The Village is requesting every resident and business, if you have not already done so, to sign up for the “CODE RED” Emergency Phone Notification located on the right hand tool bar. All information will be kept strictly confidential. Additionally, if a person or business does not wish to be notified in an emergency, they can request that their phone number be removed from the database.
We are also looking for an emergency contact in the event of a problem at your residence or business and you are not at that location. The emergency contact should have a key to the location and know any alarm codes. Residents are requested to fill out the online Resident Survey form located under the General Information tab. This is the quickest way for residents to change their information on file.
