Weld County Emergency Alert Sign Up
Help us help you in an emergency!
CodeRed, the Emergency Notification System in Weld County, is used by public safety officials to inform the public of immediate threats to health and safety. When you sign up to receive emergency alerts, you will be notified when an emergency is happening in your area. Some examples of messages you could receive include: severe weather situations, a “boil water” order if systems are compromised, or a notice that you should stay inside because of critical police activity. You may choose to receive messages on your home phone, cell phone, email, or text message.
