CodeRED is a high-speed mass notification system designed to keep you safe in the event of an emergency. This service allows us to deliver emergency or time-sensitive messages to you via text, email, landline, cell phone, RSS, social media, or a mobile application push. CodeRED alerts will display as originating from 866-419-5000 on your caller ID. If you missed any of the message details, you can also dial the number back to hear the complete message.
CodeRED will be used for emergency or time-sensitive situations to keep you informed. We might use CodeRED in situations such as wildfires, evacuation notices, floods, boil water notices, criminal activity, and missing persons/children.

It is recommended to sign up all phone numbers associated with your home address. For example, sign up your cell phone, your landline, and your family members cell phones who are living at your residence so everyone receives a CodeRED emergency alert during an emergency event in your neighborhood.
It is also recommended to add CodeRED's two phone numbers 1(866) 419-5000 and 1(855) 969-4636 to your cell phone and/or landline contacts as "CodeRED Emergency Alerts." This way, when you receive a phone call from either of CodeRED's phone numbers during an emergency event, you will be able to recognize the call as a CodeRED alert rather than easily mistaking the 1-866 or 1-855 number as a telemarketer.
Residents are given the option to create a managed account, or simply review and submit their information. Creating a managed account is recommended because it will allow you access to modify your existing notification settings and contact information.
Registering for CodeRED alerts is 100% FREE and simple. Residents can customize their alert preferences and choose to receive alerts via phone call, text, and/or email.
Residents can also download the FREE CodeRED Mobile Alert app to receive notifications directly to their mobile device, however it is highly recommended for residents to register for CodeRED alerts rather than just downloading the app. The CodeRED Mobile Alert app is available through the Apple Store or Google Play.
211 Connecting Point is helping Nevada County residents with sign up assistance. Residents with 530 area codes can dial 2-1-1 to talk to someone over the phone who can help you sign up for CodeRED Emergency Alerts. However, accounts set up over the phone will not be a managed account where information can be modified later. If 211 is not able to answer your question, they will help refer you to Nevada County's Office of Emergency Services (OES).
