CodeRED system test – May 10, starting at 6 p.m.
Reminder of prevention rules during Civil Protection Week
As part of Civil Protection Week, the City will conduct a CodeRED test on Thursday, May 10, at 6 p.m. to allow everyone to become familiar with the system. This automated emergency call service allows the City to reach residents who have signed up when broadcasting alerts and general advisories.
“In the event of a disaster and depending on its extent, Civil Protection Week recommends that everyone be able to be meet their basic needs for the first three days. That is how long it could take for emergency teams to come to your assistance or for public utilities to be restored,” stated the mayor of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere.
The database contains all listed landline telephone numbers within the City of Pointe-Claire as of December 2017, as well as all numbers registered using the online form. You can add a cellphone number to your address at any time by filling out the online form.
The test will be sent at 6 p.m. It is possible that you will only receive the message at 6:30 p.m. at the latest, depending on phone line availability.
What happens if you do not answer a CodeRED call?
- If you have voicemail, the system will leave a message.
- If you do not have voicemail, the system will call you back at least three times within 15 minutes.
If you have not received the CodeRED trial call by 6:30 p.m., sign up! You can also call City Hall during opening hours to register. The multiservice counter team is also available to assist you every Thursday evening until 7 p.m.
“In Pointe-Claire, we care about your health and safety. You can always count on the cooperation of the authorities and staff at the City of Pointe-Claire in an emergency,” said Mayor Belvedere in conclusion.
