In mid May 2006, the City of Blue Ash implemented an emergency telephone notification service through a contracted company called CodeRed. The system, sometimes referred to as “reverse 9-1-1,” is designed to call residences and businesses within the city via telephone with a recorded message, alerting them of matters of public safety such as crime alerts, missing persons, evacuation, shelter-in-place, etc.
Although initial data of residential addresses and telephone numbers was downloaded into the system by CodeRed, residents and businesses are encouraged to link to CodeRed where they can individually enter their information, which is kept strictly confidential. The opportunity to enter multiple telephone numbers is also possible (such as cell numbers, etc.). See link below.
While an initial download of residential phone numbers will be made, it’s important to note to our business community that such a download of business phone numbers is not available. So it's important for businesses to enter their phone information to be included within this notification service. (See link below.)
Please also note that it is NOT the intent to use this system to notify in the case of severe weather. Given the unpredictability and sudden nature of severe weather, residents will need to continue to rely on the Hamilton County sirens for immediate notification. Though the system will not be used to warn of weather emergencies, the system can be very useful in the aftermath should such a disaster affect any portion of Blue Ash. For example, in providing road closing, shelter, and other pertinent information to residents, etc.
If a resident chooses not to be included in the database to receive these public safety messages, they may remove their telephone number(s) from the database by downloading, completing, and returning the Request for Removal from Database Form (see link below). Sorry … no return faxes or E-mails of this form are accepted since original signatures are required.
