CodeRED Emergency Notifications

The Piedmont Police and Fire Departments are now offering Emergency Notifications through a system called CodeRED. This system utilizes telephone, email, text messages, and/or a mobile app to notify residents of emergencies and other public safety related news.

Residents who register for the City’s CodeRED emergency notification system will receive notices regarding public safety situations, major street closures, planned power outages, and others at the same time information is sent to the press.

The City of Piedmont provides this service to residents at no charge. Go to the CodeRED site to register for the service. Registration is simple. All you need is your name, address, and phone number. Residents who do not have access to the internet may call Barbara MacLean at the Piedmont Fire Department at (510) 420-3028.

The CodeRED alert system will be launched with a City wide notification. The City will conduct a test alert using a telephone voice recorded message. This message will provide our residents with information regarding CodeRED, and instructions on how to register to receive emergency alerts.

The City’s existing Public Safety Dispatches email notifications will be discontinued on September 16, 2013. Residents who are subscribed to the existing system must register for the CodeRED system to continue to receive alerts.


If you are interested in organizing, hosting, or attending a neighborhood safety meeting, please go the the Public Safety Committee’s page and enter your information. You will be contacted by a member of the committee who will give you information on setting up a meeting.
