The Town of Lynnfield and its two water districts – the Lynnfield Center Water District and the Lynnfield Water District - has contracted with Emergency Communications Network, Inc. (ECN) to license its “CodeRED” high-speed notification solution to bring Reverse 911 to Lynnfield. The CodeRED system provides Lynnfield officials with the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire town in the event of an emergency. The mass notification system will be used to notify residents of emergency situations or important municipal announcements via mass phone calls, texts, and e-mails.
 
ECN’s sophisticated network supports a web-based product suite featuring CodeRED. The high volume and high speed communication service employs a unique geographical-based system capable of dialing thousands phone numbers per hour. It can deliver the pre-recorded message to a live person or an answering machine. CodeRED will automatically include all listed numbers in the Town of Lynnfield. In order to supply cell phone numbers and e- mail addresses, all residents and businesses are required to log onto the Town of Lynnfield website, and follow the link to the "CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment" page.
 
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. All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers or those who have changed their phone number or address within the past year. Also, those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number should register.
 
Those residents without Internet access may go to the Lynnfield Public Library to use the Internet during normal Library hours to provide their information over the Internet. For those residents who cannot enter the information via the Internet, they can opt to come to either water district office or either fire station and fill out a written form and the information will be forwarded. Do not call the police department for information.  
 
There will be “test call” of the new Reverse 911 system on Saturday March 19th at approximately 11:00 a.m.
