The City of Mineral Wells has contracted with Emergency Communications Network, Inc. for its CodeRED high-speed telephone emergency notification services. The CodeRED system gives city officials the ability to deliver prerecorded emergency telephone information messages to residents in a timely manner.
This system allows us to telephone all or targeted areas of the City in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action, such as an evacuation, contaminated water, hazardous chemical spill, etc. This system is capable of dialing the entire City within minutes. It then delivers a prerecorded message describing the situations to a live person or an answering machine in the affected area, possibly including instructions requiring immediate action on the part of the recipient.
A list of land-line telephone numbers of individuals residing inside the city limits of Mineral Wells has been added to the CodeRED system. However, it is certain that not all phone numbers of residents and residential and business property owners within our incorporated limits were included. No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is registered. All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the last year, or those who use a mobile phone as their primary home phone.
Additional phone numbers, including mobile phones may also be added to the list. You may add phone numbers on-line by visiting the Mineral Wells CodeRED website or by calling the Mineral Wells City Clerk's office at (940) 328-7700 Monday through Friday (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) to give information over the phone. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no PO boxes), city, state, zip code, primary phone number. If a mobile phone is given as the primary phone number, the name of the service provider is also required.
When registering you may also opt to receive CodeRED Weather Warning by checking the appropriate box.
