Weld County Emergency Notification System - CodeRED
The CodeRED high-speed emergency notification system is used to alert county residents of emergencies. The CodeRED system also offers new features to subscribers including free weather notifications via text or email.
Why should I register my information with CodeRed?
By registering your information with CodeRED, through www.weld911alert.com, you will receive emergency notifications from Weld County and/or your local law enforcement agency. These notifications will include severe weather warnings, missing children alerts (Amber alerts), law enforcement activity — any incident in which residents in the immediate area and surrounding areas would need to take appropriate steps to safeguard life and property.
I’ve already signed up for emergency notifications from Weld County. Do I need to sign up again?
Residents who have already registered their phone numbers with the previous system (Intado) will automatically have their numbers loaded into the new system. Existing users, however, are encouraged to create a user profile with CodeRED and make sure their information in the system is current. Current subscribers received a notification announcing the new system and reminding them to check their information to ensure the data pertaining to them and their home is as accurate as possible.
Can I register more than one phone number with CodeRed?
Yes. You can enter multiple phone numbers (landline, cellular, TTY, VoIP) in the CodeRED system. You may register as many phone numbers to an address as you wish. Sorry, pager numbers will NOT receive these calls, so please don’t use those as a secondary number.
I don’t live in Weld County, but my business is located in Weld County. Can I register my business information?
Yes. You can register your business address and phone number in the CodeRED system. Because there are laws about calling more than one number associated with a business, please register the one number you want called if an emergency affects your business. Please make sure the number provided is one that actually gets answered by a person or answering machine, not an automated call processing system.
Is there a charge to register my information?
No, there is no charge to you when you register your information with CodeRED to receive emergency notifications.
How will I know when the emergency message is from CodeRED?
When you receive a CodeRED Emergency message, you will see the phone number 866-419-5000, and if you have signed up for CodeRED Weather Warnings, you will see the telephone number 800-566-9780 during weather events. If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone, simply dial that number back.
CodeRED will attempt to deliver the message to each registered number up to three times in order to maximize the number of delivered messages. It can deliver the pre-recorded message to a live person or an answering machine. The message will consist of six key elements:
1. Statement that it is a CodeRED emergency message from the Weld County Regional Communications Center or local law enforcement agency.
2. Time and date of the call.
3. Scope of the emergency.
4. Area(s) affected by emergency.
5. Action that needs to be taken.
6. Directions for obtaining more information.
