Reverse 9-1-1 and phone / text / email weather warnings and emergency alerts are now available and free to Cheyenne, Sherman and Rawlins County residents and businesses. County Commissioners have signed an agreement with Emergency Communications Network to implement CodeRED which is a high-speed emergency notification system, stated Ryan Murray, Emergency Management Director for the three counties.
Cheyenne, Sherman and Rawlins County residents with listed land-line telephones are automatically entered into the system to receive emergency alerts, such as evacuation notices or missing child alerts, specific to the area of the county in which they live.
The weather warning portion of CodeRED is an opt-in only product that taps into the National Weather Service’s storm based warning system. During the enrollment process, individuals can opt-in to the weather warnings that will automatically alert affected citizens in the path of the server weather just moments after the warning has been issued.
Area residents and business owners can enroll on-line to add unlisted numbers, cell phone numbers, or email addresses and to opt-in to the weather warnings by going to the website: https://public.coderedweb.com/CNE/BF44D25748D8 and completing the online enrollment form.
When completing the online enrollment, it is important to complete the verification step which shows your physical location on a map. If the map does not show your exact location, you should modify it during by dragging the marker to the correct location to ensure an accurate location is entered.
