The Village of Barnesville Emergency Notification System, CodeRED, will be tested on Wednesday, March 1, 2023 at 1:00 PM to validate telephone numbers in the CodeRED’s database. Residents that reside within the corporation limit will receive a test message on that date. The CodeRED system is provided to Barnesville through Belmont County 911. Here’s what you need to know about this test:
- There is no need to take action if you receive the call. Emergency personnel are merely testing the system to ensure it is operational as needed, and to encourage additional residents to enroll to receive future notifications.
- This process helps us continually improve the system. Testing increases the efficiency of the system and speed at which notifications will be delivered during an actual emergency.
- Visit our website to update contact information. If your phone number is not in the database, you will not receive a call when we do launch an important notification.
Residents and businesses are encouraged to visit our website and update their contact information, in particular those individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number. The more residents who actively add or update their contact information in the emergency database, the better able we are to protect people and property.
The CodeRED system allows Village of Barnesville and Belmont County officials to effectively reach residents and personnel by using the system’s capabilities to send telephone calls, text messages, emails and social media posts to inform residents and better protect life and property.
Village officials urges citizens to visit the Village of Barnesville website, www.barnesvilleohio.gov and click on the CodeRED button. Questions regarding this system test should be directed to Barnesville Police Department 740-425-1976.
