How does CodeRed determine what phone number to dial?
Emergency Communications Network, the developers of the CodeRed system, use a number of commercially available phone number databases. These databases do not, however, include all phone numbers. Unlisted numbers and numbers not included in the most recent database would not be called. Pennsylvania State legislation was recently passed to allow the use of the confidential 9-1-1 telephone number database for Emergency ENS calls. As soon as the rules and regulations governing that use are determined, Centre County will use 9-1-1 data for emergency notifications.
