What is CodeRED?

The CodeRED Emergency Telephone Calling System is an extremely high-speed telephone communication service available for emergency notifications.

How does it work?

The system is used to quickly notify residents and businesses in a geographic area of a potential hazardous situation, missing or endangered person, evacuation notices and other important public safety notices. Officials in Scarborough will determine the need for a broadcast and can initiate a call in minutes. The system is capable of 60,000 calls per hour. A townwide alert may take 15 minutes and a localized one may be only a couple.

What do you need to do?

Although most phone #'s are in the system there is a potential that yours is not. The Town of Scarborough does not have access to the database, we can not confirm that your number is logged. You may visit the link below which provides for entering your data. You may enter a primary and secondary number, the secondary number could be your cell phone number so you can be alerted while away from home. The system will not make duplicate calls. If you were already in the database and added your info you will not receive two calls to the same phone number.

Maine Law

Maine’s Child Passenger Safety (CPS) law is one of the strongest in the country. The law requires the following:
  • Children who weigh less than 40 lbs. must ride in a child safety seat
  • Children who weigh at least 40 lbs., but less than 80 lbs. and less than 8 years old, must ride in a federally approved child restraint system
  • Children who are more than 8 years old and less than 18 years old and more than 4 feet 9 inches in height must be properly secured in a safety belt
  • Children under 12 years old and who weigh less than 100 lbs. must be properly secured in the back seat of the vehicle, if possible.
For Your Child’s Safety:
  • Children must ride rear facing until they are 1 year old and weigh at least 20 pounds.
  • Never place a rear facing child safety seat in front of an air bag.
