CodeRED is an emergency notification system used to inform residents of emergency situations or critical community alerts.  Once activated the system will attempt to contact citizens up to three times and will leave messages in voicemail boxes and on answering machines.  Messages can be sent to an entire jurisdictional call list or to selected areas and neighborhoods of a city or county.

Cass County and Clay County residents also have the option of receiving severe weather warning alerts by phone through the CodeRED Weather Warning alert system.  The system calls residents to warn them if the National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm warning, a tornado warning, or a flash flood warning.  Weather alerts are an optional service, and residents are able to choose which weather alerts they would like to receive.
