PRESS RELEASE
Town of Bridgton
 Release Date: July 10, 2015

CODERED Emergency Alert System -Voice Over IP (VOIP)

The Cumberland County Regional Communications Center began using the CODERED emergency Alert system about a month ago and reports that the system is working well.

According to Director Bill Holmes, “staff members report that the system is easy to use and functions well.” Holmes said that last week, the CODERED system was used to alert area residents / businesses in Windham of a missing elderly woman. Within minutes, after receiving the alert notice, a local bank called to report that the woman reported missing was inside the bank.

An update to the initial CODERED implementation includes notifying citizens in Cumberland County using VOIP telephones who wish to receive the emergency alert notices that they will need to “opt in” their telephone information in order to alert notices.

​Citizens can opt in their cellular telephones and VOIP telephones by going to the Cumberland County website at cumberlandcounty.org and selecting the CODERED Icon.


Additional questions may be directed to Glen Glarland, Fire Chief for the Town of Bridgton, at 207-647-8814
