I have just helped another neighbor sign up for the Code Red program sponsored by the City of West University. So I am double-checking with all my friends to make sure they are aware of this valuable free service.
Throughout the Hurricane Ike recovery, Code Red called us regularly with advisories on the drinking water, trash removal, electrical repairs, availability of ice, etc. The notices will go to cell phones, land lines, and email. These calls have been enormously helpful to us during the restoration of critical city services.
If you would like to receive these updates, go to the City's homepage at http://www.westu.org/ and choose "Click here to Sign Up" for Code Red.
Please pass the word about this important city service to your friends and neighbors.
