Hayward sets up emergency notification network

HAYWARD — Anyone who wants to be notified when there’s an emergency should sign up for the city’s CodeRED system. It costs nothing, and your information will not be shared.

The city’s official release:

The City of Hayward Fire Department has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides public safety officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire city.

Garrett Contreras, Fire Chief of the Hayward Fire Department, cautioned that such systems are only as good as the telephone number database supporting them. “If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called.” One of the reasons the CodeRED system was selected is it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system’s database; this is an extremely important feature.

“Nobody should automatically assume his or her phone number is included,” Contreras said, urging all individuals and businesses to log onto the City of Hayward(COH) website, www.hayward-ca.gov, and follow the link to the “CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment” icon prominently displayed on the main page.

All businesses, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, those who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number are encouraged to register.

Registering is quick and easy requiring only first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary and cell phone numbers. Those without Internet access may call the disaster preparedness hotline at 510-583-4948 and supply their information over the phone.

Contreras explained, “CodeRED allows for geographically based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency notification calls are received by the appropriate individuals, in a given situation. The system also works for cell phones, but we need to have an associated street address to provide relevant messages.”

Contreras stated, “CodeRED gives those who want to be included an easy and secure method for inputting information. The data collected is for our use only and will only be used for emergency notification purposes and will not be shared.” Questions should be directed to the Public Information Officer at 510-583-4948
