Click here to sign up for CodeRED emergency notifications

West Homestead keeps residents and businesses informed of emergencies and other time-sensitive information through CodeRED, a high-speed emergency notification solution provided by Emergency Communications Network. The borough uses CodeRED to quickly and effectively keep the community informed of time sensitive information that may impact the entire borough, or specific neighborhoods. To see how the CodeRED system works, click here.

West Homestead will use the CodeRED system to keep you informed of emergency information that may impact your safety by sending you telephone calls, text messages and emails. Messages may regard evacuations, police activity, missing children, boil water notices or other information that you are asked to take immediate action or precautions for.

Please note: If you are unsure of whether your contact information is in the emergency database, or you have recently moved or changed your telephone number, it is important to visit the enrollment page above to add or update your information. Do not assume you are automatically enrolled to receive notifications.
