St. Croix County implemented the CodeRED mass notification system as part of its total 9-1-1 and emergency communications upgrade. The CodeRED alert system quickly delivers alerts of major emergencies to targeted areas or the entire county. Alerts are delivered to landline telephones and wireless devices by voice, text, or email. The system is able to deliver over 2,000 individual notifications simultaneously.
CodeREDi s a free emergency notification service that will notify St. Croix County residents of emergency information through phone calls, text messages and emails. The system will be used to keep you informed of local events that may immediately impact your safety. St. Croix County encourages all residents to take action and register your cell phone and landline for this service and verify your home location during the enrollment process so we may target notifications that directly impact your home or business.
Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number, additional phones numbers can be entered, as well as multiple e-mail addresses. The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes.
There is also an app called CodeRED Mobile Alert that you can download onto your smartphone for free from iTunes or Google Play. The Code Red system is geographically based, alerting only individuals and residents in particular areas where emergency conditions exist, so you should not normally receive alerts that do not pertain to your registered address area.
