CodeRED Information for Ashland Residents

The Town of Ashland, through the Grafton County Sheriff's Department, now offers CodeRED, which is an emergency alert system that relays information to residents by telephone. In case of an emergency, the system is capable of dialing thousands of phone numbers per hour. It then delivers our recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.

It is important that all residents and businesses in Ashland subscribe to the system to ensure proper notification can be made during an emergency. Subscription is quick and easy, and your information will remain confidential within the system and not be used for any other purpose.
