The Municipality has recently initiated CODE RED.
CODE RED can be sent to your land line, cell phone or email to email to advise you of critical communications such as; Evacuation Notices, Missing Child Alerts, Severe Weather and/or Snow Ban Alerts, Localized Criminal Activity, etc.
CODE RED will relay emergency and non-emergency alerts from the Police Department, Fire Department and Department of Public Works.
CODE RED technology will allow our Police Department to target specific neighborhoods or streets affected by crime and quickly notify citizens of criminal activity. Instructions on how to participate may be found on the Kingston Web Page (www.kingstonpa.org) or Facebook (Kingston Police Department).
