Custer County is now using CodeRED for their emergency communications to the public. The CodeRED system provides county officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire county. When you enroll to receive CodeRED warning notifications, you will receive a call or message regarding such emergencies as severe thunderstorm warnings, fire warnings, flash flood warnings and winter storm warnings.
When a warning goes out, you will know the call is from CodeRED when your Caller ID displays 866-419-5000 or Emergency Comm for Emergency Notifications or 855-969-4636 or ECN Community for General Notifications.
If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone, simply dial the number back.
If you are not sure that you are included in the database, log onto the Custer County CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment page. It is recommended that all businesses register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number.
If you do not have access to the internet, please stop by the public library for assistance on creating your account on CodeRED.
