CodeRED - Emergency Notification System

Notifying Citizens in an Emergency

What if an emergency situation arose in La Grange and all or portions of the Village were affected? How can people be notified? The Village has implemented a new tool called CodeRED, an emergency notification system capable of placing up to 60,000 telephone calls per hour. A pre-recorded message will be delivered telling residents and businesses about the situation and what actions, if any, should be taken.

View how the CodeRED System works.


Do not automatically assume your telephone number is included. You should register if you:

  • Changed your phone number or address within the last year
  • Have an unlisted phone number
  • Use a cellular phone as your home phone (the system works with these, but requires a La Grange street address)

All businesses should also register for CodeRED.

When registering for CodeRED, please fill out all of the screens. The newest data entered will replace the old data.
