Wilton Wants Residents to Sign Up for Alerts

WILTON, Conn. – The town is asking residents to sign up for the Code Red notification system so they can receive information during emergencies such as the August hurricane and pre-Halloween storm.

The Code Red system is used to spread official emergency information. The telephone-based system also has capabilities to send emails and text messages.  

The town’s website ( has a button where residents can register phones for Code Red notifications. Only registered phones will receive alerts.
