CodeRED Emergency Notification System

CodeRED is a high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides county officials with the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire county.

The system; however, is only as good as the telephone number database supporting it. If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called. The CodeRED system allows individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's database. No one should automatically assume their phone number is included. All individuals and businesses are urged to follow the link to the CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment page. Those without Internet access may call the Price County Sheriff's Office Monday through Friday, (7:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.) to supply their information over the phone. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no PO boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number, additional phone numbers can be entered as well.

All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number. CodeRED allows geographically based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency notification calls are received by the proper individuals in a given situation. The system works for cell phones too, but we need to have an associated street address to provide relevant messages.

CodeRED gives those who want to be included an easy and secure method for inputting information. The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes. Questions should be directed to the Price County Sheriff's Office, 715-339-3011.

Code Red Mobile Alert Button
CodeRED also offers a new public safety app - CodeRED Mobile Alert. The app, which is a free download for iPhone and Android subscribers, will allow County residents, as well as those traveling through the area, to receive community and emergency alerts via notifications to their smartphones. This additional tool will help to inform the community and visitors about important information that may impact their safety. If the app is downloaded and you are in the affected area of the alert, a notification will be sent through the app to alert you of the issue.

Residents who have enrolled for the CodeRED system will continue to receive voice calls, text messages and e-mails. However, the app is designed to keep users safe and informed while on the go. The app is unique because, for example, if a County resident is traveling to another state that also uses the CodeRED system, they will receive any community or emergency alerts from that specific area as well. It's just one extra way to stay safe when you're away from home.

Emergency, community and missing children alerts are free to app users. The app also provides subscribers a free, 30-day trial of CodeRED Weather Warning, which alerts users if they are in the direct path of a severe thunderstorm, tornado or flash flood. Users have the ability to select the types of weather notifications they want to receive, to customize the app based on their unique preferences. With the weather component, you don't have to be worried about missing hearing a tornado siren or watching a weather report. The app will alert you immediately after the National Weather Service issues a severe weather warning, no matter the time of day.

Residents with iPhones and Android smartphones are encouraged to download the app to begin receiving notifications from the Price County Sheriff's Office. The app is available for a free download on the iTunes store and Google Play. For more information or to download the CodeRed Mobile Alert app, visit
