The CodeRED System is an emergency notification system to alert the public of emergencies and disasters, safety measures to be taken, and information pertaining to governmental operations. This emergency mass notification system is capable of reaching thousands of residents and businesses in a matter of minutes. A pre-recorded message with important information can be delivered to a live person, answering machine, or TTY/TDD device.
Residents can sign up to receive alerts via cell phone call, text message, and/or email. Email alerts may contain a picture if pertinent to the situation (i.e. missing person, crime suspect, etc). The County intends to only activate the system in true emergency situations such as;
- Security alerts
- Hazardous chemical spill or release
- Missing persons
- Water system concerns
- Hazardous weather
Because CodeRED system uses the 911 database, only land-line numbers (list and unlisted) are automatically included in the system. If you have a cellular or Voice over IP number and would like to be notified on that device, or an email notification, you must register those cellular numbers and email addresses by clicking on the ‘Register for CodeRED’ button below.
You will know the call is from us when your Caller ID displays:
- 866-419-5000 or Emergency Comm for Emergency Notifications
If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone, simply dial the number back.
