Emergency Notification System


The Town of Rock Hall in conjunction with the Rock Hall Police Department and the Rock Hall Volunteer Fire Company has implemented an Emergency Mass Notification System capable of reaching hundreds of residences and business in a matter of minutes. A pre-recorded message with important information can be delivered to a live person, an answering machine or
TTY/TDD device.

The application, called CodeRED, is a geographical-based web application. Officials and town employees can access the system anywhere they have access to the Internet. Looking at a map of the town, staff can zoom to the area of interest and draw a polygon selecting the area to be called.

The system uses phone numbers from Verizon’s database and matches it to the town’s structure address data. Not every residence or business may be in the system, and thus the Town of Rock Hall would like to encourage all residents and business to register by clicking on the CodeRed Sign-up link at the bottom of this page.

In the event you do not have a computer or internet access, you may visit the Rock Hall Town Hall to fill out a registration form and Town staff will enter your information into the database.

Registrants can sign up to receive alerts via e-mail or on their cell phone including text messages. E-mail alerts may contain a picture if pertinent to the situation, e.g., missing person, crime suspect, etc. Citizens can opt-in to receive general notifications as well.

You will know the call is from us when your Caller ID displays:

866-419-5000 or Emergency Comm for Emergency Notifications
855-969-4636 or ECN Community for General Notifications

If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone, simply dial the number back.

Registration is confidential, free and only takes a few minutes. Feel free to contact the Town of Rock Hall if you have any additional questions or concerns.
