Municipality of Souris-Glenwood contracts with CodeRED to
Provide Emergency Notification Services

(SOURIS, MB, January 28, 2019) – Following a thorough evaluation and review of alerting systems, the Municipality of Souris-Glenwood has implemented CodeRED, a high-speed emergency mass notification service provided by OnSolve, LLC.

The CodeRED system will serve as the backbone of the Municipality of Souris-Glenwood’s emergency planning and communications outreach to both citizens and staff. The system sends telephone calls, text messages, emails and posts to social media channels to inform residents to better protect life and property. CodeRED was selected for its reliability and accuracy, as well as the system’s wide spread adoption rates across Canada & U.S.

CodeRED’s notification system will provide the Municipality of Souris-Glenwood officials with a reliable, easy-to-use interface to quickly deliver critical information to citizens during emergencies. The Municipality is eager to use this innovative technology to enhance emergency preparedness plans.  The system will be utilized to notify residents of fires, floods, drinking water emergencies, road closures and any other important notifications.

OnSolve has provided the Municipality of Souris-Glenwood an initial database of residential and business telephone numbers; however all residents living within the Municipality of Souris-Glenwood limits are encouraged to visit https://public.coderedweb.com/CNE/BFAAD107527F and click on the CodeRED logo to enroll their contact information including cell phone numbers, text and email addresses. No one should automatically assume they are in the emergency contact database.

For more information regarding the CodeRED emergency notification system, please contact Andrew Hamilton, Public Works Manager at 204.483.5217 or sg.pwm@mtsmail.ca
