GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - The Glenn County Sheriff’s Office said they will be conducting a test of the codeRED emergency notification system on the morning of Thursday, Sept. 28.
The alert will be sent out to everyone who has registered their contact information in Glenn CodeRED, as well as all traditional landline phones within Glenn County.
The sheriff’s office said the alert may be received in all registered forms including voice phone call, text, email, and through the CodeRED app.
This is only a drill to test the functionality of the system and is NOT an actual emergency.
There are three ways to register for Glenn County alerts:
- You can register for Glenn County alerts through this website.
- You can also text GlennCodeRED to 99411
- There is also a CodeRED mobile app you can download to your phone.
“CodeRED alerts are critical to our ability to notify residents in an emergency. It allows us to target and deliver the alert to a specific geographic area such as evacuation zone, or to notify everyone registered within the county,” said Amy Travis, Deputy Director of Emergency Services.
