The City of Duncanville has recently implemented the CodeRED Weather Warning and Notification Program within the City of Duncanville. This no-charge service provided to residents of Duncanville will allow individuals and businesses to “opt-in” to receive telephone notification when severe weather is going to impact our area.
“Most relevant for our citizens is our residents can now receive severe weather warnings via their home or cell phone. The weather warning program is another tool in our tool box to make sure our residents get the appropriate weather warning notifications,” said David Giordano, Duncanville Fire Chief/Emergency Management Coordinator. “This system will augment our current outdoor alerting (siren) system. In addition to Code Red and our siren system, we encourage everyone to have a NOAA weather radio in their residence or place of business.”
The CodeRED system provides Duncanville officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire City of Duncanville. If you are not sure if you are included in the database, simply log onto the City’s CodeRED website at cne.coderedweb.com.
It is recommended that all businesses register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number. Those without Internet access may call City of Duncanville Fire Department Administration at (972) 780-4920, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to supply their information over the phone.
CodeRED Weather Warning is an opt-in only weather warning product that taps into the National Weather Service’s Storm Based Warnings. CodeRED Weather Warning automatically alerts affected citizens in the path of severe weather just moments after a warning has been issued.
