You will not find a better notification system than CodeRED; I say this with confidence and with firsthand knowledge. During “Alfred – Irene and Super Storm Sandy” the system worked flawlessly and when I could not set the message up myself due to power outages the CodeRED staff handled my launches themselves – you cannot ask for better customer service. It is reliable, effective and a tool I don’t know what I would do without. Yes, we as a PSAP can utilize a free system, but there is a cost associated with that – building a new database, additional training for personnel and then possibly hidden costs for town wide use. Our community has made the decision to stand with CodeRED as they have always been there for us – no questions asked.
