Code Red Emergency Notification System

The Town of Montague has contracted with the Code Red Emergency Communications Network so that we have a way of getting Emergency and as well as very important information out to the residents of the Town of Montague as quick as possible. In the event of an emergency this may be the only way we can get information out to you fast enough to help you and your families. We are urging residents to please click on the link below to visit the CodeRed website to add your phone numbers and to customize your account. You can choose to accept all emergency or non-emergency calls or you can simply check off that you wish to receive only emergency calls. Read through the information and choose or add the options that work for you.

This is currently the only notification system in place for the Town of Montague. All Town Departments may use this notification system to get important information out to the public very quickly. Please assist us by logging in and checking to make sure your information is correct then correct or modify your information as needed.

I really appreciate your help and cooperation with this. If you have a problem navigating through the site please ask a friend or family member to assist you.
Your Friend,
Chief Chip Dodge
