County: Sign Up for CodeRED Notifications

Receive updates from Suffolk County as Hurricane Irene approaches.

With Hurricane Irene setting its on Long Island, Suffolk County officials are urging residents to sign up for the county's emergency notification system. 

The county's CodeRED program allows residents to receive updates about the storm as it draws closer to our area.

The CodeRED system can deliver customized pre-recorded emergency messages directly to county homes and businesses at the proven capacity of millions of calls per day. CodeRED also has high-speed email and text messaging capability, county officials said.

You can enroll in the Code RED system here:


If you know of someone who is interested in the program but does not have Internet access, they can call the Office of Emergency Management’s Customer Service Number (631) 852-4900, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 pm.

ALL of those LOSERS on the podium during Levy's FAKE news conference, will be the first ones OUT OF TOWN, while Tax Payers will have sit here and take it, I'm sure in a REAL emergency ! Depending on these public officials to save lives is a waste of time ! This program is so full of holes, it's sinking on it's own Corruption.

There are 1.5 million residents in Suffolk County. The call was purely informational and not time-sensitive as earthquakes cannot be predicted. Due to local network capacity in Suffolk only so many calls can go through at a time, the system has the power to call 1.5 million residents at the same time but the local NY networks can't handle this incoming volume. This system reunited a missing child with it's family last week, it's a lifesaver.

This system saved a childs life last week. How many dollars is that worth? I bet a lot if it was your kid.

Precisely Emily :)

Really, the system has already saved 1,000 missing children. Sounds like it doesn't work, very astute observation!
