    County-wide emergency notification call planned for March 5

    Jefferson County, CO. – Jefferson and Broomfield Counties emergency services agencies, including law enforcement, fire and EMS, are working together to test their emergency notification system CodeRED.

    On March 5, starting at 9 a.m., the CodeRED emergency notification system will begin making test notifications. This process is expected to take several hours due to the large number of notifications being made via landline, cell phone, text and email.

    The CodeRED system is used by emergency services agencies in Jefferson and Broomfield counties to help disseminate information regarding critical incidents. In addition to Jefferson and Broomfield, there will be portions of Adams and Clear Creek Counties included in the CodeRED notification.

    Citizens can elect to also receive notification of severe weather using the CodeRED Weather Warning system.

    Landlines are automatically included in CodeRED notifications, but residents and businesses are encouraged to visit the CodeRED registration web site at your911.net to add additional contact information, including additional phone numbers, SMS (text) and email address preferences. This is especially important for those addresses without a landline, as individuals must register if they want to receive emergency notifications.

    Residents wanting more information about the test notification process or with questions should contact their participating emergency service agency.
