The CodeRED system will serve as the backbone of the City of Emporia emergency planning and communications outreach to both community members and staff. The system sends automated telephone calls, text messages, and emails to inform residents to better protect life and property. 

The city uses the system to notify residents of waterline breaks, road closures, construction hazards, as well as general notifications such as sanitation schedule changes.
