Code Red Information



West Side Regional Emergency Management Agency has signed a contract with Emergency Communications Network, Inc., also known as Code Red. The function of the Code Red system is to notify residents and businesses by phone message of potential or on going emergency situations. The system has the ability to deliver up to 60,000 calls per hour.
This service is only for residents and businesses located in Sinking Spring Borough, West Reading Borough, Wyomissing Borough and Spring Township. In order to ensure that your residence or business is registered in the system it is recommended that you visit the website to enter your contact information. To register, simply go to the main page of this website and click on the words "CODE RED".
Code Red is a patented message delivery system that ensures messages are delivered in full. The system calls each number up to 3 times.
The Code Red System will provide assistance to the community by:
  • Assuring that as many residents as possible receive accurate and clear information.
  • Provide documented confirmation of the individuals and businesses alerted.
  • Contacts cell phones if requested while registering.
  • Reduce the demand on emergency personnel's time when mass notification may be of critical importance.
