Stay Informed, Sign Up for CodeRED & Twitter

Post Date:02/10/2017

The Village of Bartlett is encouraging residents to sign up for the CodeRED Emergency Notification System. This free service gives Village staff the ability to quickly notify residents of emergencies and other high priority information via recorded voice or typed messages. The CodeRED notices can be delivered to the entire Bartlett community or to geographically targeted neighborhoods.

Bartlett recently used the CodeRED system to share information about the Kickstand Classic Bicycle Race, an armed barricade situation on Gardenia Lane and a residential burglary incident on Wilcox Drive.

When you see 866-419-5000 on your caller ID, you will know the call is from Bartlett’s CodeRED system. If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone, simply dial the number back.

If you reside or own property within the incorporated limits of Bartlett, you can sign up for CodeRED emergency messages on the CodeRED Notifications webpage.

Although the CodeRED system utilizes a public database for calling, you should not automatically assume that your phone number is registered with this service. Please be aware that you will not receive notifications if your phone number is not in the database. In addition to your landline phone, you also can register to be notified via cell phone, text message and email.

The Village of Bartlett is also encouraging residents to follow the Village of Bartlett and Bartlett Police Department on Twitter to receive notifications and learn more about upcoming Village events, traffic advisories and other important community information. Please visit www.twitter.com/bartlettpd or www.twitter.com/bartlettil or sign up for a free Twitter account and then follow “bartlettil” or “bartlettpd.”

Please call Scott Skrycki in the Village of Bartlett Administration Department at 630-837-0800 if you have any further questions about the free CodeRED Emergency Notification System or Twitter.
