CodeRED Emergency Notification System
The City of DeSoto has instituted the CodeRED Emergency Notification System - an ultra high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications.
Targeted Alerts
This system allows us to telephone all or targeted areas of the City in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as a boil-water notice, missing child or evacuation notices).
50,000 Calls per Hour
The system is capable of dialing 50,000 phone numbers per hour. It then delivers our recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.
