CodeRED Reverse 911 Alerts

The Keenesburg Police and Southeast Weld Fire Protection District both rely on Weld County Regional Communications Center (WCRCC) for dispatch services. When a resident of Keenesburg or any other south Weld County community dials 9-1-1, the call is routed to and answered by WCRCC. The 9-1-1 center has the ability to notify specific communities of impending hazards by using 9-1-1 technology to call all telephones in a geographic area. Landline phone subscribers are enrolled automatically via the 9-1-1 system. A CodeRED message might be launched in situations like police activity in an area, a lost child (Amber Alert), wildfires, tornados and other severe weather, or any other public safety incident in which residents in the immediate area and surrounding areas would need to take appropriate steps to safeguard life and property.

However, most cellular phones are not enrolled automatically. We encourage all residents to enroll their cell phones in CodeRED to ensure emergency messages are delivered in case of an emergency. 

Messaging System

CodeRED will attempt to deliver the message to each registered number up to 3 times in order to maximize the number of delivered messages. It can deliver the pre-recorded message to a live person or an answering machine. 

Register Your Information Online

Although many landline telephones are automatically registered with the emergency notification database, you are encouraged to go online and register your own personal information. By doing so, you will be ensuring that the data pertaining to you and your home is as accurate as possible. Assure your information is accurate by going online and registering. 

You will be asked for your name, address, primary phone number (which should be your home number), and a secondary phone number. This secondary number could be your cell, VoIP, work, or any other telephone number you would like to be called on if an emergency notification call is initiated in the area where your home is located. You may register as many phone numbers to an address as you wish. 

Encourage Your Friends and Neighbors To Register

Please encourage friends, family members, neighbors, and co-workers to submit their contact information. Businesses should also register. Because there are laws about calling more than one number associated with a business, please register the one number you want to be called if an emergency affects your business. 

Please make sure the number provided is one that actually gets answered by a person or answering machine, not an automated call processing system. The CodeRED System will not be used for non-public safety notifications, special events, polling surveys, etc. Your information will not be sold to third parties.
