Switching from Nixle to CodeRED
Effective October 1, 2016, the City of Woodstock will launch the use of CodeRED community notification system for relaying time-sensitive information such as weather alerts, missing persons, evacuation notices, etc.
Registration for this notification service is customized, allowing residents to choose which alerts they would like to receive and how they would prefer to receive them. Residents can choose several different methods: landline, cell phone, email, text message, TTY, or a combination. These alerts can be specific to streets, neighborhoods, or regions so that residents in affected areas are sure to receive the information.

The CodeRED app may also be downloaded to any smart phone. There are over 3,000 agencies across the United States utilizing CodeRED. If you have the CodeRED app on your phone while traveling and you are in an area where a CodeRED alert is distributed, you will receive the notification on your phone.
Currently, the City of Woodstock utilizes Nixle notification system. Any person subscribed to receive Nixle alerts from the City of Woodstock will need to subscribe to CodeRED to continue receiving alerts from the City of Woodstock after October 1, 2016.
Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, Office of Emergency Management, and City of Canton also utilize the CodeRED notification system.
