Keeping Citizens Informed
Why should I sign up for Code Red?
Stay informed and safe when there is an emergency in the county.
The City of Brookfield has partnered with CodeRED to provide county-wide community alerts and notifications. CodeRED is used to send geographically targeted communications during critical incidents. Localized or county-wide messages are sent, dependent upon need:
- Lost, abducted, or missing children or vulnerable adults
- Increases in crime (e.g., crime alerts for neighborhoods and businesses)
- Bio-terrorism and hazards materials or chemical spills
- Sex (predatory) offender notifications
- Natural disasters
- Fires and evacuations
Brookfield residents are encouraged to enter their contact information for home and work addresses, along with their landline and mobile phone numbers and email address. This will ensure alerts and notifications are received when needed.
No one should assume their contact information is in the database. While the CodeRED database contains some basic phonebook information, there is no guarantee your information is in the database, especially if you have unlisted phone numbers, mobile phones, or voice over Internet provider (VOIP). If your contact information is not in the database, you will not receive alerts.
Sign up is free, quick, secure, and confidential
