Uinta County including all school districts and other city law enforcement, County Sheriff and state agencies have contracted with Emergency Communications Network, Inc., of Ormond Beach, Florida, for its "CodeRED" high-speed telephone emergency notification services. The CodeRED system gives county, school and city officials the ability to deliver pre-recorded emergency telephone notification/information messages to targeted areas or the entire county at a rate of up to 60,000 calls per hour. Schools also have the ability to send messages for snow days and other emergency school closures. Be sure schools have your current information.

The CodeRed system is only as good as the telephone database supporting it. "If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called". The CodeRED system not only offers faster calling rates and improved message delivery, it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly to the system's telephone database. This is an extremely important feature.
To ensure no one is omitted, all individuals and businesses need to go to this website: https://public.coderedweb.com/CNE/DE953DCD3F6A to make sure their information is included. Those without Internet access may call, Uinta County Emergency Management Coordinator (307-783-0327) Monday through Friday, (8AM-5PM) to give their information over the phone. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number, email, additional cell phone numbers and carrier.
No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included. All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the last year, and who use a cellular phone as their primary home phone.
"CodeRED system is a geographical based notification system, which means street addresses are needed to select which phone numbers will receive emergency notification calls in any given situation. The system works fine for cell phones too, but we have to have a street address". People who have recently moved but kept the same listed or unlisted phone number also need to change their address in the database.
"CodeRED gives those who want to be included an easy and secure method for doing so. The information will only be used for emergency notification purposes". Questions should be directed to the
Uinta County Emergency Management Coordinator (307-783-0327).
