When a situation arises in La Grange, Village staff will turn to the Internet and the CodeRED
mapping tools to designate a call area based on addresses. With the push of a few buttons, a pre-recorded message describing the situation will be delivered to people or their answering machines in the affected area.
This message can also include instructions requiring action on the part of the recipient. Some emergencies or disasters that might call for action include:
- Boiling contaminated water
- Sheltering in place
Once the situation is remedied, a call can be placed to the area signaling that the issue has been addressed and that normal activities can be resumed.
