Note: This info is from a press release issued by the City of Malden on November 8, 2022.
Malden is converting the system it uses for mass alerts (CodeRED) over to a new system that will be known as Malden Alerts. All residents must sign up to the new system to receive emergency alerts from the City of Malden as well as other notices we think will be important to you. These may include information on winter weather, parking, traffic, roadwork, voting, public health, and public safety as well as other City alerts.
Important note! Although you may already receive alerts via phone or text from the City of Malden’s existing system, there is no guarantee that your information will be migrated, so we ask that residents please sign up for the new system.
This will be especially important with winter weather right around the corner. We do not want our residents to miss out on any notices on Snow Emergencies – risking potential ticketing or towing – so please visit www.cityofmalden.org/MaldenAlerts to complete the signup process.
Other than emergencies, you may also now choose which types of alert categories you want to receive, and you can modify those selections at any time. You will also be able to put in your Malden address to receive any alerts that are specific to that location, such as roadwork on your street, hydrant flushing, etc.
One of the most exciting new features of the system is that you can sign up using your native language and choose to receive alerts in your native language. We will send you alerts via email, text or voice call. Provide us with your most reliable contact information and also consider urging family members or roommates to do the same.
The old system known as CodeRED will be shut down as of December 31, 2022, so you must sign up for the new Malden Alerts service as soon as possible to ensure you continue to receive these important notices. Visit www.cityofmalden.org/MaldenAlerts.
