Residents are probably already familiar with CodeRED, which is used by the Borough of New Providence to broadcast emergency and urgent information. Similar telephone notifications are also used by the school system to inform parents of upcoming school events or emergency situations.

The system is voice activated. The recipient must say “Hello” before the message will be relayed.

To sign up for CodeRED click the left logo below.

For those residents without Internet access, they may call the Municipal Center at 908-665-1400 to supply their information over the phone. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code and primary phone number. Additional phone numbers can be entered as well.  If you do not have a New Providence address but would still like to receive our Code Red messages, please contact the Police Department at 908-665-1111.

The program can be utilized by both residences and businesses. If you have an unlisted phone number, have changed your phone number or address within the past year or use a cell phone or VoIP phone as your primary number, you should register for the alerts. Multiple telephone numbers can be attached to a single physical address, but residents cannot have multiple residences linked to one phone. Both IPhones and Android phones also have a CodeRED app available.Click on the left logo below to enroll or the right logo to hear the last five alerts sent:
