The Town of Sterling has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to deliver Emergency Notification Messages (previously known as Reverse 911) through the CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides town officials with the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire town. CodeRED replaced the Reverse 911 system that the Town of Sterling previously used through the Worcester County Sheriff's Office.
Register your contact information with this system to ensure that you will be included! Accurate and up-to-date information is essential for you to receive critical information.
Businesses and residents should register to receive target information. Registration is especially important if you:
- Are a Business owner
- Have an unlisted phone number
- Have changed your phone number or address within the past year
- Use a cellular phone as your primary number
- Use VoIP as your telephone connections (such as Xfinity Voice from Comcast or Vonage)
CodeRED allows geographically based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency notification calls are received by the proper individuals in a given situation. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P. O. Boxes), city, state, zip code and primary phone number. You may enter additional phone numbers and include TDD/TTY information as necessary.
