Want to receive timely emergency notifications regarding potential flooding, boil water alerts, public safety matters, and more? The City of Detroit has launched a new notification system called Detroit Alerts 365 that sends Detroit-specific emergency notifications to individuals who sign up. The City is using the CodeRED emergency notification system, which now operates in thousands of municipalities and areas nationwide.
With this new, free system, individuals can choose to receive alerts via cell phone, landline, text, email, TTY, and/or social media. The high-speed system can reach people across the city in seconds, ensuring critical information can be quickly shared for situations such as:
Among the many important benefits of Detroit Alerts 365:
To register for Detroit Alerts 365, individuals should visit detroitalerts365.org and click on the Detroit Alerts 365 logo, or text DetroitAlerts365 to 99411.
CodeRed Mobile Alert App
Individuals can download the mobile app and receive notifications based on their current location. This would enable residents to receive emergency alerts if they are in any area where an alert has been issued, including another area of Detroit or any area of the country where the CodeRED emergency alert system is utilized.
The CodeRED Mobile Alert App is a free download on The App Store and Google Play.

If These Walls Could Talk: Researching Your Historic House
Friday, November 12 — 1 to 4 p.m.

Demystifying Museum Registration Methods
Friday, November 19 — 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
with Sarah Humes, Grand Rapids Public Museum
What numbering system should we use? Where do you write the numbers? How do you apply the numbers, and with what? What is Chenhall’s Nomenclature?
