Weather Emergencies...  Know Before You Go... Sign-Up for “CodeRed”

Code Red

The Woodbridge Township Office of Emergency Management has implemented an “up-to-the-minute” Township-wide “CodeRed” telephone alert system.  “CodeRed” is an emergency notification service that provides timely alerts to Township residents and businesses with important emergency-related information. While most Township residents with “land-line” or “home” telephone numbers are listed in the Emergency Management database and receive timely emergency information, a growing number of residents rely primarily on a cellular phone, text message or email.  We want to make certain that if there is an emergency, all Township residents get information ASAP… and reaching residents on their cell phone or via text is simply the best way to provide timely and perhaps life-saving information.  BUT YOU HAVE TO REGISTER TO GET “CodeRed” MESSAGES.  Residents, along with anyone working in Woodbridge, are encouraged to visit the Township web page: www.twp.woodbridge.nj.us.  CLICK on the CodeRed logo to enroll contact information, including land-line and cell numbers, email, and text addresses.
