Now Available to Fremont County Residents
Fremont County has contracted with Emergency
Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification
The CodeRED system provides County officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire County.
I want to caution you that such systems are only
as good as the telephone number database supporting them. If your
is not in the database, you will not be called. One of the reasons the CodeRED system was selected is it gives individuals and
businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's database, this is an extremely important feature.
No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included. I urge all individuals and businesses to log onto the link
above to the CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment page. All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have
unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone
or VoIP phone as their primary number.
CodeRED allows geographically based delivery,
which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency notification
received by the proper individuals in a given situation. The system works for cell phones too, but we need to have an associated street
address to provide relevant messages.
CodeRED gives those who want to be included an
easy and secure method for inputting information. The data collected will
used for emergency notification purposes. Questions should be directed to the Fremont County Emergency Management Office,
712-374-3355 or by email at email@example.com.

Be Ready Iowa
local emergency management officials, along with the National Weather
Service, stress the continued need and
importance of education and preparedness for severe weather that may affect Iowans. Knowing what to do in advance can
help prevent unnecessary panic and confusion when severe weather does strike. Learn the warning signals used in your
community and put together an emergency supply kit that includes a flashlight, battery operated radio, extra batteries, and
simple first aid items in a waterproof container. See www.BeReadyIowa.org, for more information on how to create a
family emergency plan and supply kit.
