Code Red


The Town of Barrington and the Barrington School Department have contracted with Emergency Communications Network, “Code Red” to provide an emergency calling system for the town and schools. Code Red is a web based system and one of the features is a link for the Town’s website. The secure, customized Community Notification Enrollment (CNE) page allows residents and businesses to add or update their contact information to ensure they will be included when a message is sent – unlisted numbers, mobile numbers, TDD/TTY requirements can all be loaded.
