Great Barrington: CodeRED test slated Wednesday
The town will conduct a test of the CodeRED emergency alert system at noon Wednesday, March 25.
Residents who have signed up for the CodeRED alert system can expect test emails, texts and/or an automated phone call on Wednesday.
The test is intended to make sure that the system is operating properly and that residents who are signed up receive messages during this period of COVID-19. If town-wide communications are required, CodeRED will be used.
Anyone signed up for CodeRED who does not receive an alert is asked to contact the town's email inbox for COVID-19 information, at email@example.com, or call the Town Hall at 413-528-1619, ext. 3.
To sign up for CodeRED, visit townofgb.org. The system is available to town residents and people who work or do business in Great Barrington. A Great Barrington physical address, for work or business, is required to sign up.
