Code Red Emergency Notification System

Thank you for your interest in signing up for Oneonta's Emergency Notification System. We are proud to offer this service to the public.

An Emergency Notification System, or Reverse 911 as it is sometimes known, gives those in charge of Public Safety a chance to reach out to the public in case of an emergency event. This system, combined with our other emergency alert methods, is designed to get emergency messages to you the public, quickly and effectively.

This does not preclude you from calling 911 if you have an actual emergency

This simply provides an opportunity for us to disseminate critical information to you if and when the need arises. The reason for this form is to gather as many means of contact as you may have, so that in the event of an emergency that affects Oneonta, we can notify you in multiple ways.


  • We maintain a constantly updating database of all  telephone numbers registered in Oneonta. Feel free to list any additional land line phone numbers, however we are most interested in gathering cell phone numbers and email addresses.
  • If you have an Oneonta address, please provide it in the Street Address field, in the event of a localized emergency your local address will integrate with the notification systems mapping capabilities.
  • This information will remain in the custody of the Oneonta Emergency Management Office at the Fire Department at all times, and will only be used for Emergency Notification purposes.
  • If you wish to opt out of the system, you need to fill out a waiver stating that you do not want to be called and submit it to the City or Town clerk's Office.

We appreciate you taking the time to share this important information with us!
