CodeRED Community Notification
The Town of Fairfield has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license a new and improved high-speed notification system, CodeRED, which replaces Reverse 911 and provides Fairfield officials with the ability to quickly deliver phone messages to targeted areas or to the entire Town in emergency situations.
All businesses should register, as well as all residents who aren't already in the system; have unlisted phone numbers; have changed their phone number or address within the past year; or who use a cellular phone or VIP phone as their primary number.
