The Rising Star Volunteer Fire Department has partnered with the City of Rising Star and Rising Star ISD to contract with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides Rising Star officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted groups or the entire community.
Persons who sign up to receive notifications will receive a recorded message at the phone number of their choice. They may also choose to receive a text message or e-mail. The CodeRED dialing system will attempt each phone number up to 3 times in the first round of calling, and will deliver the message to a live person or an answering machine.
