Notification System Operational in Plymouth Co. &
Bristol Co. Residents Urged to Add Contact Information
to the Database
MA – August 2011 The Plymouth
County Sheriff’s Department has contracted with Emergency
Communications Network to license its CodeRED
high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED
system provides Plymouth County and Bristol County officials the
ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas throughout
these two counties.
County Sheriff Joseph D. McDonald Jr., cautioned that such systems
are only as good as the telephone number database supporting them.
"If your phone number is not in the database, you will not
be called." One of the reasons the CodeRED
system was selected is it gives individuals and businesses the
ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's
database; this is an extremely important feature.

receive text messages.
businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have
unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or
address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone
or VoIP phone as their primary number.
McDonald explained, "CodeRED
allows geographically based delivery, which means street addresses
are required to ensure emergency notification calls are received
by the proper individuals in a given situation. The system works
for cell phones too, but we need to have an associated street
address to provide relevant messages."
