The RM of Russell Binscarth has implemented the CodeRED system. This is a high-speed emergency notification service provided by the Emergency Communications Network.

The CodeRED system will serve as the backbone of the Municipality's emergency communication strategy to reach out to both citizens and RM personnel by using the system capabilities to send telephone calls, text messages and emails in an effort to effectively inform residents to protect life and property.

Russell Binscarth anticipates using the system to notify residents in specific geographic locations of events such as evacuations, floods, road closures, fires, missing person notices and other situations where public safety is a concern.

CodeRED has been provided an initial database of residential and business telephone numbers, however all residents living within RM of Russell Binscarth limits are encouraged to enroll additional contact information including cell phone numbers and email addresses by clicking.
