Washington County “Code Red” System


The Washington County Public Health Department and Washington County Sheriff’s Office has implemented a Mass Notification System named “Code RED”.

Code RED is a web-based system allowing a large number of regional citizens to be contacted in a very short period of time, by a geographically based delivery of phone and text messaging. The system uses the latest in mass-notification technology making the system very easy to use.

Dellwood’s contract with Washington County provides our residents the ability to create their own account at no cost; at any time, Dellwood residents can add or remove numbers they want the Code RED system to call. This is a City/County partnership that truly benefits all of us. To sign up for Code RED, go to http://wcsheriff.info and follow instruction links on the page.

CodeRed just started offering a notification widget that shows the last notifications put out by the various Washington County agencies. The Widget can be downloaded for free at:
