Danville Emergency System

DANVILLE —The Town of Danville is participating in the CodeRED Emergency Notification System, which will enable Town officials, Police, and Fire to call the entire community with vital information efficiently.

The initial message that was delivered to residents directed them to the Town of Danville website at www.TownofDanville.org inviting them to add additional contact numbers, and it also asked residents to spread the word by mentioning the system to family, friends and neighbors.

Shawn O’Neil, the Emergency Management Director, suggests that “all individuals and businesses should take the time to visit our website and add contact information to include cellular phones and other non- traditional phones as well as email and text addresses. If your contact information is not in the database you will not receive a call when an urgent message is sent.” In particular, businesses and residents who have unlisted phone numbers or have changed their phone number recently, and those who use a cellular phone exclusively or have VoIP phones (such as Vonage) as their primary numbers should register. All data that you enter is strictly confidential, and will not be shared with any third party.

O’Neil urges residents to log-on to the Town of Danville website at www.TownofDanville.org and follow the CodeRED link at the top of the page. Those without Internet access may call the Board of Selectmen’s office at 603-382-8253, ext. 3 during business hours, Mon.-Thurs., from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to request data entry. Required information includes a street address (physical address, no PO boxes) for location purposes and a primary phone number. Additional phone numbers, email and text addresses may also be entered.

More information about the CodeRED system can be found at the CodeRed FAQ page on the Town of Danville website. Any questions or comments should be directed to the Emergency Management Director at EMD@TownofDanville.org.
