Grand County tests Code Red Emergency Notification on June 7

Grand County Office of Emergency Management will be testing the Code Red emergency notification system countywide. Thursday, June 7, residents who have registered their cellular phone can expect a call between 1 and 2 p.m. with a test message. Calls to landline phones can be expected if they are registered into Code Red. The phone number that will appear is 866-419-5000 or Emergency Comm.

Code Red is a communication tool that works for cells phones as emergency notification works for landlines. Code Red has been beneficial to community members and second homeowners who may not have a landline phone in their homes. In times of evacuation, fire or other public emergencies the Code Red system will call your registered mobile phone and playback a recorded message from the Grand County Office of Emergency Management. It can also send text and/or e-mail to inform you of the incident and important instructions. You can register for Code Red at http://www.gcemergency.com.
