Oak Ridgers can now register for CodeRED notifications by texting ‘OAKRIDGE’ to 99411

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (Oct. 1, 2020) – Oak Ridgers now have a new way to register for the CodeRED Community Notification System, which is used by the City to make notifications during the event of an emergency, severe weather, extended power outage or other community events.

Many residences no longer have home phones but rely on their cell phone for communication. Individuals can now text the keyword ‘OAKRIDGE’, without a space, to 99411, and receive a response back containing the Community Notification Enrollment (CNE) link for the City of Oak Ridge.

The CodeRED system allows individuals to log into the system and register their cell phone number and e-mail address in order to receive alerts while at work or home.

If someone lives outside the Oak Ridge city limits, but works in the city, then they can register their cell phone at the business address and receive notifications while at work.

Residents can still register online and on a desktop device by clicking here or visiting oakridgetn.gov/department/FireDept/Safety/CodeRED.

For more information, visit oakridgetn.gov or contact the Oak Ridge Fire Department at (865) 425-3520.
