The City of Arlington’s CodeRED community notification system, launched in 2021, is designed to provide residents important information about city service interruptions or public emergencies through phone calls, emails and/or text messages. The City can activate the notification system for issues such as temporary boil water notices, garbage and recycling service updates, natural gas leaks, severe weather alerts or other incidents with broad public impact. 

How Does CodeRED Work?

CodeRED is a web-based community notification system that provides local governments the security to send information and urgent notifications to residents and businesses over phone, text message and email. This system provides quick communication with thousands of residents within minutes. This is a free service to all City of Arlington residents and businesses.

Text to Sign Up

To sign up to receive free notifications from the City’s community notification system, text ARLINGTON to 99411. You will receive a link to the CodeRED webpage where you can sign up for notifications. You can select which notifications you’d like to receive and add your preferred methods of communication.

Multiple Languages

Whenever you sign up with a managed account, you can select 1 of 23 different languages for your notifications. Simply select your preferred language at sign-up.

CodeRED messages are sent via a #866-419-5000 phone number for emergencies and a #855-969-4636 number for general notifications. To be sure you can receive all notifications, save these numbers as “CodeRED” in your contact list. If you would like to hear any message again, just call the number back to have it repeated.

The City has also created printable posters, available in English and Spanish, to share with your community.
