The Douglas County Emergency Telephone Service Authority will be testing the CodeRED emergency notification system on Wednesday, Oct. 4, at 9 a.m. The purpose of this test is to validate the telephone numbers in the Douglas County emergency notification database. There is no need for action if you receive the call.
The Caller ID will read 866-419-5000, and the message will say, “This is a test of Douglas County CodeRED Emergency Notification System. No action is required; this is only a test. Had this been an actual emergency, you would have received important information from your local public safety officials. Again, this is only a test.”
Douglas County residents and businesses are encouraged to visit www.DouglasCountyCodeRed.com
to sign up to receive CodeRED notifications or update their contact information, including additional phone numbers and email addresses, to ensure all of the data in the system is accurate and current. Citizens who have unlisted phone numbers, changed their phone number or address within the past year, and/or those who use a cellular or a VoIP phone as their primary number should add or update their contact information in the emergency database.
The CodeRED notification system assists in providing registered citizens with necessary public safety information pertaining to their registered location via telephone calls, text messages, and/or emails.
