The Village of Barnesville has implemented the CodeRED emergency alert high-speed notification system. The CodeRED system gives Village officials the ability to quickly deliver pre-recorded telephone notifications and informational messages to targeted areas or to the entire village. Notifications can be received by phone, text message, email, and by a free mobile app. The CodeRED system is being provided to the Village of Barnesville through Belmont County 911. Emergency Notifications may include: Boil Orders, Missing Persons or Children, Criminal Activity, Evacuations, Local Security or Crime Alerts.
The Village of Barnesville may also activate CodeRED to send General Notifications to subscribers to disseminate non-emergency notifications for community reminders and information such as: Road Closures, Street Sweeping Schedule, Cemetery Cleanup, Fire Hydrant Flushing, Leaf Pickup, Christmas Tree Pickup, and Village Events.
We encourage residents to opt-in to receive the General Notifications.
No one should assume their phone number and information is already in the database. Much of the information that we currently have are from public databases. All businesses should register, as well as individuals who have unlisted phone numbers or use a VoIP as your phone connections (such as Xfinity Voice by Comcast, Vonage, Google, Skype, or AT&T U-verse, etc.), and those who have changed their phone number or address within the last year. In addition to this, those using cell phones as their primary phone should also register.
