Public Emergency Notification System
In an effort to reach more citizens during an emergency, Park County now uses the CodeRED Emergency Notification System.
With this system, citizens are able to enter their own data and choose
how they would like to receive the notification. It allows Park County
residents the ability to supply their own information.
Not only does this ensure a more accurate database, but also allows residents to input an unlisted number, their cell phone number, or any other secondary phone numbers. This will create a more robust database and reach more residents with essential emergency information.
You will recognize the CodeRED call when your caller ID displays the following numbers. Please be sure to add these telephone numbers into your telephone's contacts, when applicable.
866-419-5000 or Emergency Comm for Emergency Notifications
855-969-4636 or ECN Community for General Notifications
800-566-9780 or Emergency Comm for CodeRED Weather Warning Alerts
If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone, simply dial the number back.
Sign Up to Be Notified in an Emergency
If you would like to be notified in an emergency, sign up through CodeRED. From there, you can fill out a simple form to be added to the database.
SMS Text Message Short Code
On December 13, 2017 a new short code was launched. The new short code will be 76993. This means that CodeRED SMS text messages and Weather Warning messages will be coming from a different short code (number), but still delivered in the same, reliable way. Please note, a short code is a 5-digit number that CodeRED uses to send messages to mobile devices and the number that comes across your mobile when an alert is delivered. Once you have programmed this number into your mobile under the proper name, all messages will display as addressed from "CodeRED Alert".
