What is the CodeRED telephone emergency notification system?

In the case of an emergency or urgent notification, the City of Garland now has the capability to notify residents via the telephone through a tool called CodeRED. The system is geographical-based and allows the City to alert citizens based on their location and telephone numbers. A pre-recorded message will play for a live person or an answering machine to provide information about the specific situation and if any action is necessary. Citizens may register both landline phones and cellular telephones, so you can be notified whether you are at home, at the grocery store or at the kids' soccer games. 


Residents can now enroll using their login credentials from Google, Facebook or Twitter. The Single Sign-On (SSO) feature streamlines the registration process and makes it easier for residents to access their account to make changes later. This update will not affect current registrations, only new registrations will have this option. Register online now!
