The City of  St. John has received a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency  (FEMA) which allowed us to contract with Onsolve to license its CodeRED high-speed notification System in St. John. The CodeRED system provides St. John officials the ability to quickly deliver urgent, as well as informational, messages to the residents and businesses of St. John.

Such systems are only as good as the telephone number database supporting them. If your phone number is not in  the database, you will not be called. One of the reasons the CodeRED system  was selected is that it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own  phone numbers directly into the system’s database, this is an extremely  important feature.  

No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included.   All individuals and businesses  should log onto CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment page. Those without Internet access may call the St. John Police Department (314-427-8700, #5), Monday  through Friday, (8am-5pm) to supply their information over the phone. Required  information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no  P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number you want to receive CodeRed alerts on, additional phone  numbers can be entered as well.

All businesses should register,  as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed  their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular  phone or VoIP phone as their primary number.

CodeRED allows geographically  based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency  notification calls are received by the proper individuals in a given situation.  The system works for cell phones too, but we need to have an associated street  address to provide relevant messages.

MobileAppLogoA mobile app is also available.  This will allow you to pick up any CodeRed alerts that are issued in St. John, as well as any other place you may be driving through.  

CodeRED gives those who want to  be included an easy and secure method for inputting information. Questions  should be directed to the St. John Police Department at 314-427-8700, #5.
