Page Background


Anne Arundel County utilizes an emergency notification system, CodeRED, capable of contacting citizens and businesses quickly in case of an emergency. CodeRED alerts the public of emergencies and disasters, safety measures to be taken, and information pertaining to government operations.

Citizens can sign up to receive alerts to their phone or email. Email alerts may contain a picture pertinent to the situation (for example, missing person, crime suspect, etc.). Anne Arundel County will utilize the system in true emergency situations such as, but not limited to:

  • Security alerts
  • Hazardous chemical spill or release
  • Missing persons
  • Evacuations
  • Water system concerns
  • Hazardous weather

Citizens will see the phone numbers listed below displayed on the caller ID, and will know the call is from CodeRED. To hear the last message delivered, simply call the number back.
