JAMESTOWN - Stutsman County Emergency Manager Jerry Berquist has announced that on Friday, February 17th Stutsman County Communications will be performing a county-wide test of the CodeRED mass notification system. The test will occur between 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.

 
This system is used to alert residents of emergency events and notifications of immediate concern to the public. CodeRED informs the public by calling all land line telephones within the selected warned area. It also alerts those individuals that have signed up for notifications via cell phone, email or text message.

The test message that will occur on Friday will be general in nature and describe that the call is a CodeRED test call. Residents will not need to respond to the message. CodeRED service is free of charge to residents and businesses. Land line telephones are already included in the notification database.

To receive notifications via cell phone, email or text, individuals can sign up for the service by going to the Stutsman County website (http://www.co.stutsman.nd.us/), scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the CodeRED icon. Those without Internet access can call Stutsman County Emergency Management at 701-252-9093, Monday through Friday, (8AM-5PM) to sign up over the phone.

The system is only used by Stutsman County officials to provide residents with important information that will keep the community safe and informed. Questions regarding CodeRED services should be directed to Stutsman County Emergency Management
