Code Red Emergency Notification System

The Village of Winfield has activated the Code Red Emergency Messaging System that will allow the Village to reach potentially thousands of residential contacts with emergency information within a matter of minutes. This system will be used to provide messages regarding safety, health, and emergency notifications to Village residents, employees, business proprietors, and schools.

All known land-lines have been included in the system data base and resident will have the ability to add or remove contact information using the following link . This will allow you to add a cell phone number or secondary contact as an additional means of receiving notifications. To remove your land-line from the data base, please contact the Winfield Police Department at 630-933-7160.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Winfield Police Department at 630-933-7160.

Got the Dot? Program

The Got the Dot? program is a statewide initiative designed to provide vital medical information on drivers and passenger to first responders. This medical information will remain in the glove box of the vehicle and will assist first responders in the "Golden Hour" immediately following a serious traffic crash or medical emergency. This can often mean the difference between life and death. The medical information cards and yellow dot decals are available at the Village Hall. There is no charge for this program.
