Alert service offered on smart phones in Rossford

Rossford's CodeRED community alert service is going mobile.

The city, through its service provider, Emergency Communications Network LLC, now provides public safety alerts to iPhones and Android smart phones.

Residents as well as others who spend time in Rossford are encouraged to download the app to receive the notifications. The app is free through the iTunes Store and Google Play.

Residents already enrolled in CodeRED will continue to receive voice calls, text messages, and emails.

The app also provides a free 30-day trial of the CodeRED Weather Warning, which alerts users if they are in the path of a thunderstorm, tornado, or flash flood. Users can choose the type of notification they wish to receive.

"With the weather component, you don't have to be worried about [not] hearing a tornado siren or watching a weather report," Fire Chief Jim Verbosky said.
