The city has an emergency notification system called CodeRED, which will alert each resident by phone or e-mail in the event of an emergency.
The ultra high-speed telephone communication service allows the city to telephone all or targeted areas in case of an emergency, such as drinking water contamination, utility outage, evacuation notice, missing person, road closures, fires, floods, law enforcement activities that may impact the city, chemical spills and gas leaks where rapid and accurate notification is essential for public safety. The system is capable of calling home and cell phones and sending out emails.
City officials urge residents to take a few minutes and sign up for the service online on the city’s website at cityofcanyonlake.com. On the website, click on Services then Disaster Preparedness.
Those who previously signed up and haven’t made changes to their contact information don’t need to sign up again.
