The Village of Indian Hill has
implemented an emergency telephone notification
service called CodeRED, that will be utilized
to immediately notify residents of critical situations. The system communicates a pre-recorded message to
the recipient or their answering machine. The system can also generate a text version of the message sent as an email or text message (you must provide an email address or cell phone number to receive these, update your information at this link). The area to be contacted can be narrowed to one
street, broadened to a selected radius from a
chosen point on a map, or encompass the entire
village and water works service area.
Please update your contact information here to ensure you receive important messages from the Village.
Calls received from CodeRed will come from the following numbers:
- 866-419-5000 for emergency calls
- 855-969-4636 for general calls
The Police, Fire, and Water
be able to initiate the procedure as necessary
for various emergencies. The Rangers can activate
the system in many instances, including notification
for missing children/elderly persons, and other
critical situations. It will even be used to
canvass areas of the Village where a recent crime
has occurred. Residents will receive a message
regarding for example a recent burglary in their
neighborhood, and asked to contact the Rangers
if they have any information that may assist
in the investigation.
The Fire Department will utilize the system
in situations when residents may need to "shelter-in-place" or
evacuate their homes, due to hazardous materials
released or other biological threats. The Water
Department can send messages regarding main breaks,
service outages, boil advisories, and any other
important information for water works customers.
