Village of Great Neck Notification System

In an effort to provide a communication system with the residents in the Village of Great Neck, we have implemented OnSolve/CodeRED as our Emergency Notification service provider. CodeRED is a web-based critical communication solution that enables municipalities to notify residents and businesses by telephone, text message, email, and social media of time-sensitive information, emergencies, or non-urgent notifications. The system can reach  hundreds of individuals in minutes to ensure these information. Only authorized officials have access to send alerts using the CodeRED system.

When will CodeRED be used?
Any message regarding the safety of our residents and community will be disseminated using CodeRED. We will send out alerts via phone, text, email, and social media in a variety of situations including gas leaks, evacuation notices, police activity, fire emergencies, missing persons, and non-emergency notifications and more. This is a community alert system to ensure you remain informed of important information. Please keep in mind that as you register to receive CodeRED alerts, you have the ability to select the types of messages you wish to receive and your preferred means of communication.

Is there a cost to register for CodeRED?
No, registering for CodeRED phone calls, text messages, and email are free. Simply sign up on our enrollment website and select your preferred means of communication.

How will I know when CodeRED is calling?
A CodeRED message will have the caller ID 866-419-5000 for emergencies and caller ID 855-969-4636 for non-emergencies. We suggest that you program these numbers into your cell phone. If you need to replay the message received, you can dial this number and listen to the message again in its entirety.

Can I register more than one phone number or email for my address?
Yes, you can register more than one phone number and/or email address for your location when you register for CodeRED. Please note that it is highly recommended you register at least one phone number and one email address to ensure that you will receive CodeRED alerts in the event of a power outage or an incident that may occur late at night when you are generally asleep.

Do I ever need to renew my registration?
Renewals are not necessary as long as your contact information has not changed. If you move, however, you must update your information to ensure you will continue receiving these valuable notifications.

What is the CodeRED Mobile Alert app?
CodeRED offers a mobile app for Android and iPhone devices. All residents and business owners are encouraged to download the free app to receive alerts based on the geo-location of your phone. As you travel throughout other CodeRED communities, you can receive important alerts that include community, emergency, and severe weather information. To download the CodeRED Mobile Alert app, visit Google Play or the App Store.

Why is CodeRED important to me?

CodeRED is an important to tool to help keep you informed. This system is precise enough to geotarget residents within an exact area of impact, so that only those people who are affected by emergency situation are notified.
