Baltimore’s New Emergency Alert System Looks to Reach Mobile Devices

The City of Baltimore is launching a new system that notifies residents of major emergencies.

At a news conference on Wednesday, ex officio Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young said the Bmore Alert system allows the city be able to send the notifications in the event of an emergency like a blizzard, train derailment or flood.

“We can trigger alerts to any specific geographic area in the city,” Young said.

The system is utilizing an application called CodeRED, made by Florida-based ONSolve. This allows the alerts to be sent to devices via call, text and email, as well as to social media. Any alerts sent by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) can also be transmitted through the system.
