How do I enroll to receive CodeRed Emergency Alerts?

In addition to our City of Kettering, Ohio – Government Facebook page and @Kettering_OH Twitter posts, the City of Kettering uses a system called Code Red to notify our residents and those who work in Kettering of emergency incidents and critical community alerts?

Please enroll to receive official City of Kettering public safety and city service related emergency notifications at home, on your cell phone, by text and/or by email.

You may also enroll by texting KETTERING to 44911.
When you enroll in Code Red, you may opt to receive alerts on your home or cell phone, by email and by text. Please note that because of the emergency nature of some alerts, notices may be received at all hours. Should you wish, you can easily decide later to opt out from receiving future alerts. Please be aware that if you opt out, you will not receive any future notifications including communication about interruptions in service or emergency alerts that are relevant to you.

How CodeRED Works

CodeRED is a fast communication tool for emergency notification. When there is an emergency, the City determines which neighborhoods or areas are affected and creates a recorded message that describes the emergency and provides directions to the public. After the message is confirmed, the high-speed dialer delivers the message at a rate of 50,000 calls an hour to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.
