Milwaukie Police Department activated CodeRED on Jan. 15th when a shooting suspect was at large in the Island Station Neighborhood.
CodeRED was activated back in June 2007, instructing Ardenwald-Johnson Creek NDA residents to stay indoors and close all windows after ammonia leaked from a nearby cold storage facility.
The CodeRED system is for emergency communications only and will appear as “9999119999” on the subscriber’s CallerID.
