The City of Fairfield uses the CodeRED® emergency alert system as a tool to notify its residents and businesses of urgent situations. The system enables the city to send high-speed alerts via telephone. These calls may be sent to all or to portions of the city dependent on the geographic impact of an event. For example, a missing person alert might be broadcast community wide, while a water boil alert would generally be sent to a targeted affected area. Information is delivered using recorded messages that detail the situation and which may provide further instructions to the recipients.
