new 2014 CodeRED Notification System Updates and New Mobile Application
CodeRed CRM

The Town of Nahant  has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides Nahant Town, Police and Fire officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to Town residents.

Nahant Police Chief, Robert Dwyer, cautioned that such systems are only as good as the telephone number database supporting them. "If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called." One of the reasons the CodeRED system was selected is it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's database, this is an extremely important feature. “No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included,” Chief Dwyer said urging all residents and businesses to log onto either or, and follow the link to the "CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment" webpage.

Those without Internet access may call the Nahant Police at 781-581-1212 Monday through Friday, (8AM-4PM) to supply their information over the phone. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number, additional phone numbers can be entered as well.

All businesses should register, as well as all residents who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number. CodeRED allows geographically based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency notification calls are received by the proper individuals in a given situation. The system works for cell phones too, but we need to have an associated street address to provide relevant messages.

CodeRED gives those who want to be included an easy and secure method for inputting information. The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes. Questions should be directed to Police Officer Armand Conti 781-581-1212

never forget

"As we observe this solemn day in U.S. history -- the (eighth) anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks -- we as a nation remember the thousands of lives lost and the people whose lives were changed forever.
We also honor the heroism of all first responders including fire fighters, law enforcement and emergency medical services, and our citizens who responded selflessly in the face of terror. "
David Paulison, FEMA Director (From September 2006 Address)

The Nahant Police Memorial

The Nahant Police Memorial

I never dreamed it would be me
My name for all eternity
Recorded here at this hallowed place
Alas, my name, no more my face

"In the line of duty" I hear them say
My family now the price will pay
My folded flag stained with their tears
We only had those few short years

The badge no longer on my chest
I sleep now in eternal rest
My sword I pass to those behind
And pray they keep this thought in mind

I never dreamed it would be me
And wish with heavy heart and bended knee
I ask for here and all the past
Dear God, let my name be the last.
