CodeRED is a Community Notification System that allows the RRECC and local public safety/government officials to send out emergency and non-emergency information to any phone line (cellular or landline), text messages, emails, and smart phone push notifications to our residents and businesses. Known commonly as a “reverse 9-1-1 system,” CodeRED has an important place in our communities as a means to quickly alert people to serious situations such as severe weather, evacuation notices, missing children, crime alerts, etc.
