Code Red – Mass Notification System – Sign Up!
The Fairview Fire District in partnership with the City of Hayward uses a high-speed mass communications device that when you sign up, will automatically contact individuals or groups using multiple communication lines to call home, cellular and/or work telephones alerting participants in this free program. (Please be sure to read this entire page to learn about Alameda County’s new AC ALERT system and subscribe to both).
Should a large scale emergency occur in your community or greater Bay Area, Fire Department personnel can notify participating residents in a matter of minutes. If phone lines are busy, the Code Red notification system will redial those numbers at a predetermined number of attempts to make contact. If an answering machine picks up the call, the emergency message will be left on the machine.
Notifications will consist of incident specific information, personalized messages or life-saving instructions to the community. The Fire Department, with this program, also uses a desktop mapping interface or GIS (Geographic Information System), indicating street-level maps with phone data to notify selected areas, including homes, businesses, and schools of evacuations or ‘shelter-in- place’ alerts.
Alameda County has just implemented a similar system called AC ALERT. CODE RED delivers notifications from your Fire Department . AC ALERT delivers notifications from Sheriffs Department and other emergency managers in County government. You should sign up for CODE RED and also go to this link AC ALERT to learn about Alameda County’s new system. The Fairview Fire Protection District recommends you subscribe to BOTH systems so you can receive alerts from both your local Fire Department and the County Emergency Notification System.
