The City of Balch Springs has recently upgraded its emergency notification system. The city is now using the CodeRED Emergency Notification System, an ultra high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications and the distribution of information considered to be important.
How It Works
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 an evacuation, contaminated water, hazardous chemical spill, etc. This system is capable of dialing the entire city within a matter of minutes.
It then delivers a prerecorded message describing the situation to a live person (or an answering machine) in the affected area. The message could possibly include instructions requiring immediate action on the part of the resident.
While a calling database was created by extracting information from the city's computerized files and other public record sources, it is certain that not all phone numbers of residents and residential / business property owners within our incorporated limits were captured.
If you reside or own property within the incorporated city limits of Balch Springs and would like to receive CodeRED emergency messages, please sign up online today. Sign Up Here
Important: When enrolling in CodeRED, please use your physical Balch Springs address. Do not use a post office box or an out-of-town address.
