CodeRED® Emergency Telephone Notification System

The CodeRED® Emergency Telephone Notification System can help inform you and your family when an emergency or disaster threatens your community and you need to take immediate action.

CodeRED® is intended for community emergency notifications resulting from such threats as hazardous materials spills, Public Health emergencies, flooding or missing children. Severe weather watches and warnings will not be broadcast over CodeRED® as there are a number of more efficient systems available for this purpose, such as the NOAA Weather Radio Network and the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) that comes on all new cell phones.
