Register to Receive Alerts from AAC Emergency Notification System

September is National Preparedness Month
Register to Receive Alerts from AAC Emergency Notification System

This September marks the 14th annual National Preparedness Month. One of the important components of being prepared is staying informed. Anne Arundel County in conjunction with the City of Annapolis has an Emergency Mass Notification System capable of reaching thousands of residences and business in a matter of minutes. A pre-recorded message with important information can be delivered to a live person, an answering machine or TTY/TDD device.

The application, called CodeRED, is a geographical-based web application. County employees can access the system anywhere they have access to the Internet. Looking at a map of the county, staff can zoom to the area of interest and draw a polygon selecting the area to be called.

The system uses phone numbers from Verizon’s database and matches it to county structure address data. Not every residence or business may be in the system, and thus Anne Arundel County government would like to encourage all residents and business to register on our Community Notification Enrollment page.

Registrants can sign up to receive alerts via e-mail or on their cell phone including text messages. E-mail alerts may contain a picture if pertinent to the situation, e.g., missing person, crime suspect, etc. Citizens can opt-in to receive general notifications as well. In the past, county agencies have contacted communities to warn against a rash of break-ins in their area or for changes in trash pick-up.

You will know the call is from us when your Caller ID displays:

866-419-5000 or Emergency Comm for Emergency Notifications
855-969-4636 or ECN Community for General Notifications

If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone, simply dial the number back.

Registration is confidential, free and only takes a few minutes. Feel free to contact the Office of Emergency Management at 410-222-0600 if you have any additional questions or concerns. Also visit OEM at their Preparedness Fair on Saturday, September 27th, from 10AM to 2PM at the Lowes of Quarterfield Shopping Center, 415 George Claus Blvd, Severn.
