North Metro Fire encourages all of its residents to sign up for CodeRED® (similar to Reverse911). CodeRED is an emergency alerting system that sends registered users critical safety information during an incident in their area. Notifications can be sent during range of incidents, including severe weather, a missing child, a hazardous materials emergency and other threats or incidents impacting the area.
How does CodeRED work?
During a CodeRED alert, calls, texts and emails simultaneously reach the specified community to deliver warnings and critical safety instructions. The system has a call back feature that ensures the message is delivered. Traditional landline phones through companies such as CenturyLink and Comcast phone numbers are entered into the 9-1-1 database and dialed automatically. CodeRED will not call a cell phone or VoIP system phone unless it has been registered.
Residents of North Metro Fire Rescue District can register for CodeRED in one of two ways, depending on where they live.
