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.
