What is the CodeRed Emergency Alert System?
What is the CodeRed Emergency Alert System and why is this system important to me?
Mono County utilizes what is known as the CodeRed Emergency Alert System when a critical incident or emergency situation takes place within the county. We use this system to notify the entire county or specific areas within the county of important information.
This system is a database of resident and citizen information for use only in critical and emergency situations. The CodeRed System is used to send critical communications from evacuation notices, to hazardous weather alerts, to missing children alerts. When residents and citizens enter their information into the CodeRed Emergency Alert System, they are added to a nationwide database set exclusively for emergency community alerts in emergency situations. Your contact information remains private and is only used to contact you for community emergency communications. To register for the CodeRed emergency alerts, please click here.
Samples of Emergency Notifications:
Possible Dangerous Individual
Hazardous Materials Spill
Boil Water Advisory
Health Advisory/Viral Outbreak
Samples of Community Notifications:
Community Watch Information
Fraud or Scam Alerts
Planned Water or Electrical Outages
Prescription Drug Drop Off Notices
Please Note: If you are unsure of whether your contact information is in the database or if you have recently moved or changed your telephone number, it is important to click on the above link to add and/or update your information.
The CodeRed system also has a mobile app available. Designed to keep you informed and aware, the CodeRed Mobile App uses the national CodeRed Emergency System to alert subscribers within reach of a given notification and emergency situation. The app is geo-aware, and will ask you to use your "current location," so no matter where you are when an alert is issued, you will receive a push notification along with a voice file of the alert up to 24-hours after the alert has been issued. This is a free app. Simply search "code red" to find the app through your current smart phone provider.
If you have any questions or problems entering your information into the CodeRed system, please email Sarah Roberts, Public Information Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
The Mono County Sheriff's Office encourages everyone to sign-up for the CodeRed Emergency Alert System to stay informed in case of an emergency.
