Operation AmeriCorps will support 56 AmeriCorps members over two years, generate nearly $1 million investment in the community

BLOOMFIELD, IOWA – The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency that administers AmeriCorps, today announced that Bloomfield will be one of 10 communities nationwide to become part of the agency’s new Operation AmeriCorps initiative.

Bloomfield’s Iowa Energy Independence AmeriCorps will support 56 AmeriCorps members over the next two years to reduce residential energy demand by five percent. This investment, which will reach two-thirds of all homes in Bloomfield, will lead to energy cost savings and a reduced carbon footprint for the city’s plan to be a net-zero electric community by 2030.

CodeRED is a high-speed telephone emergency notification service used by the City of Bloomfield, Davis County and the Davis County Hospital to deliver emergency telephone messages to targeted areas or the entire city or county.  CodeRED has been used to update residents about street construction, snow emergencies, and most recently the gas leak in Belknap.  Only registered phone numbers are called, so if a phone number has not been registered then no call is made. The system uses geographically based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure calls are received by the proper individual.

How does a phone number get registered?

All individuals and businesses should register. If you have an unlisted phone number, have changed your phone number, have changed your address or use a cell phone, please register to ensure you are notified.  There are several options to register required information
