Oak Ridge residents may sign up for ‘CodeRED’ notifications

Oak Ridgers now have a new way to register for the CodeRED Community Notification System, which is used by the city to make notifications during the event of an emergency, severe weather, extended power outage or other community events..

If someone lives outside the Oak Ridge city limits, but works in the city, they can register their cellphone at the business address and receive notifications while at work.

Residents can still register online and on a desktop device by clicking here or visiting oakridgetn.gov/department/FireDept/Safety/CodeRED.

For more information, visit oakridgetn.gov or contact the Oak Ridge Fire Department at 865- 425-3520.
