What is CodeRED® and why is it important to me?
CodeRED® is a new town service by which town officials can notify town residents by telephone about emergency situations or critical community alerts. The system is capable of sending messages only to people affected by a particular situation, or, in the case of a widespread emergency like a hurricane, to the town’s entire population.

The speed of the CodeRED® system (up to 60,000 calls per hour) is so great that the town is able to
send a message to affected households almost as quickly as town officials become aware of the
situation.

Why do I need CodeRED® when I have radio and TV to keep me informed?
CodeRED® is an additional measure of safety the Town of Oxford believes all of our residents need and deserve. If power goes out, you may not be able to depend upon radio and TV. However, because telephone lines are self-powered, the town can continue to keep you informed through messages delivered by CodeRED®.

Even if you have power, CodeRED® will probably be able to reach you with important information faster than TV and radio stations can put it on the air. That’s because CodeRED® is a direct connection between you and YOUR COMMUNITY.

And unlike hurricanes, many emergencies occur without advance warning. In such cases, you may have no reason to turn on a TV or radio. That’s when CodeRED® can help town officials alert you immediately and advise you to take appropriate action.

Do I have to pay extra for CodeRED® service?
No. CodeRED® is entirely paid for by the Town of Oxford at a cost of less than 40 cents per resident per year.

How do I sign up for CodeRED®?
Click the CodeRED® image anywhere on this website for a link to the Residential Data Collection Form. This is the quickest, easiest way to sign up because the information you supply will immediately update Oxford’s CodeRED® telephone number database.

Can I choose NOT to receive CodeRED® messages?
Yes. Oxford respects your privacy.

If you do not want to receive calls, please notify the Town of Oxford, preferably in writing. However, we strongly advise you to reconsider. CodeRED® is designed to make certain you receive fast, accurate emergency information directly from the town officials whose job is to help protect you and your family.
