GT Co. Emergency Notification System Performing Tests

Posted: Updated:

Grand Traverse County's CodeRED Emergency Notification system performed a test for residents who signed up for the service. 

County officials want residents to know that these test calls are legitimate. They are testing a new system.

CodeRED is an emergency notification service that allows emergency officials to notify residents and businesses by telephone, cell phone, text message, email and social media regarding time-sensitive general and emergency notifications. 

A CodeRED Emergency message test will have a caller ID of 866-419-5000. A CodeRED General message will have a caller ID 855-969-4636. Grand Traverse County officials suggest you program both numbers in your cell phone as a "new contact" and use "CodeRED Emergency" and "CodeRED General" as the contact name. 

If you are interested in signing up for the Grand Traverse County's CodeRED Emergency system, follow the link posted on the left.
