The Town of Bennett has implemented the CodeRED emergency notification system for residents.
This platform will allow Bennett to communicate with residents by sending telephone calls, text messages, emails, posts to social media and mobile app messages to inform residents about emergencies and general Town notifications.
The CodeRED system will serve as the backbone of Bennett’s emergency planning and communications outreach. The Town of Bennett will also be using CodeRED’s Weather Warning system. This automated weather warning technology will deliver phone calls, text messages and emails to registered residents and businesses within the direct path of severe weather. This is an opt-in service that automatically notifies those enrolled of tornado, flash flood and severe thunderstorm warnings just moments after an alert is issued by the National Weather Service.
All residents living within the Town of Bennett limits are encouraged to enroll using their phone numbers, emails and addresses here. No one should assume they are automatically registered in the contact database and residents are encouraged to create an account so they can personalize their notification settings.
Residents can also sign up for alerts by texting ‘BENNETTALERTS” to 99411.
