    Code Red

    The Town of Newbury and five other towns in our area have contracted with the CodeRED reverse emergency notification system, which allows the town to call you in an emergency.

    The current CodeRED database comprises commercially-available phone numbers (such as those provided on credit applications) and numbers added directly by residents of the six communities. To ensure that your phone number (including cell phone) is in the database, go to your Town’s website or to and follow the link to the CodeRED Emergency Notification Network

    Required information includes a street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes) for location purposes and at least a primary phone number. Additional phone numbers, email and text addresses may also be entered. Even if you have an unlisted phone number, you can safely register your phone number in the CodeRED database; the information will not be sold nor will it be used for any purpose other than emergency contact from the town.

    If you do not have internet access, please call Denise Sherrill at the Town Office (763-4940 x201) and she will enter the information for you.
