CodeRED test set for Wednesday in Great Barrington

GREAT BARRINGTON — The town will conduct a test of the CodeRED emergency alert system on Wednesday, March 25, at noon, said Town Manager Mark Pruhenski.
Residents who have signed up for the CodeRED alert system can expect test emails, texts and/or an automated phone call on Wednesday. The test is intended to make sure that the system is operating properly and that residents who are signed up receive messages during this period of COVID-19. If town-wide communications are required, CodeRED will be used.
Anyone signed up for CodeRED who does not receive an alert is asked to contact the town’s email inbox for COVID-19 information, at ksmith@townofgb.org, or call Town Hall, 413-528-1619 ext. 3.
To sign up for CodeRED, visit the town’s website homepage, townofgb.org; the system is available to town residents and people who work or do business in Great Barrington. A Great Barrington physical address, for work or business, is required to sign up.
Effective today, the town has eliminated the drive-thru option for patrons at Mason and Ramsdell Library.
The library had hoped to maintain lending with patrons ordering books and other materials in advance for pickup outside. But Pruhenski said the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and Massachusetts Library Association are now recommending against curbside service. The library encourages residents to utilize its extensive online collection.
Pruhenski also clarified that all town parks are open, but that playground equipment is off limits and is not being sanitized.
Also, town residents with questions about statewide COVID-19 updates and information can call the state’s 2-1-1 information line.
Finally, before going to a local hospital or emergency room call contact the Berkshire Health Systems line: 1-855-262-5465.
