Be prepared for a CodeRED emergency notification test this week

CodeRED emergency notification system will be tested Wednesday, Oct. 4

Are you and your family members signed up for CodeRED emergency notifications in Douglas County? You’ll want to be aware of a system test coming up this week at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4. The purpose of this test is to validate the telephone numbers in the Douglas County emergency notification database. There is no need for action if you receive the call.

The Caller ID will read 866-419-5000, and the message will say, “This is a test of Douglas County CodeRED Emergency Notification System. No action is required; this is only a test. Had this been an actual emergency, you would have received important information from your local public safety officials. Again, this is only a test.” This testing process will increase the efficiency of the system and the speed at which notifications will be delivered when the system is used during an actual emergency.

Douglas County residents and businesses are encouraged to visit our website to sign up to receive CodeRED notifications or update their contact information, including additional phone numbers and email addresses, to ensure all of the data in the system is accurate and current. Residents who have unlisted phone numbers changed their phone number or address within the past year, and/or those who use a cellular or a VoIP phone as their primary number should add or update their contact information in the emergency database.

The CodeRED notification system assists in providing registered residents with necessary public safety information pertaining to their registered location via telephone calls, text messages, and/or emails.

Questions regarding the CodeRED system or this test should be emailed to [email protected].
