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.
