ReadyNotify is an electronic system the city uses to notify residents of emergencies, such as water line breaks, power outages and road closures.
ReadyNotify replaces CodeRED. If you signed up for CodeRED, your information did not automatically transfer to the new system. You must sign up for ReadyNotify to continue to receive emergency messages.
ReadyNotify is operated by Cuyahoga County’s Office of Emergency Management and is voluntary. You can opt to receive notifications by landline, cell phone, text message, fax, e-mail or work phone or a combination of these.
You also can choose to receive messages from other communities as well as Berea. For example, if you live in Berea but work elsewhere in Cuyahoga County, you can receive notifications from both cities. You also can receive messages about Cuyahoga County government offices.
Registering is simple. Go online to www.ReadyNotify.Cuyahogacounty.us. The link will take you through the process step by step. The site also offers additional information about the system.
If you have no Internet access or prefer not to sign up online, simply call the Service Department at (440) 826-5816. A city employee will take your information over the phone.
With spring and summer weather conditions bringing increased rain and storms, having ReadyNotify in place is the safe thing to do. The service is free.
