The City of Port St. Joe has instituted the Code RED Emergency Notification System
- an ultra high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows us to telephone all or targeted areas of the City in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as a boil-water notice, missing child or evacuation notices).
It then delivers our recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number. This system will only be used for emergency purposes.
Examples of times when the CodeRED system could be utilized:
After you sign up, make sure to add the following numbers to your caller ID:
