CodeRED will no longer be available to residents of Black Hawk County beginning on July 1.
The Black Hawk County Emergency Management Commission has ended its contract with CodeRED, a program that allowed communities to quickly notify residents about emergencies in a variety of ways including phone calls and emails.
Residents are urged to sign up for the new system in Black Hawk County called Black Hawk Alerts. Because the CodeRED database is not transferable, you will need to sign up for the new program. Similar to CodeRED, the new system allows you to choose how you receive the alerts: home phone, fax, pager, TDD, mobile phone, text alerts or a combination of all.
In addition to weather alerts, Black Hawk Alerts allows you to receive water alerts, missing person alerts, power outages, road closures and other alerts.
