Jeffcom911, the Jefferson County Communications Center Authority, will test CodeRED, the emergency notification system on behalf of Jefferson County law enforcement, fire and emergency medical service agencies on Tuesday, December 11, 2018.

Starting at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, the CodeRED emergency notification system will begin making test notifications on all landlines, as well as registered cell phones and emails. This process is expected to take several hours due to the large number of notifications.

The CodeRED system is used by emergency services agencies in Jefferson County to help disseminate information regarding critical incidents. Residents with landlines are automatically included in CodeRED emergency notifications, but those without a landline must register cellphones in order to receive notifications. Residents and businesses are encouraged to visit the CodeRED registration web site for Jefferson County to add contact information, including additional cell phone numbers, SMS (text) and email address preferences. Residents may also elect to receive severe weather notifications.

Registration 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 can call 303 271-5800.
