The city has an initial database of residential and business telephone numbers, though officials encourage all residents to visit desplaines.org and click on the CodeRED Community Notification System button to enroll additional contact information including cellphone numbers, text and email addresses.

The city is contracting with Ormond Beach, Fla.-based Emergency Communications Network for the service.
