Clallam County Sheriff’s Office using new CodeRED alert system

PORT ANGELES — The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office has launched its new CodeRED community notification system, which sends important alerts and time-sensitive messages to staff and area residents.

The service can also push non-emergency information such as road closures, trash collection schedule changes, snow plow schedules and other city and county services, according to a press release.

“Upon evaluating our current notification system and other available options, we chose CodeRED for its innovative features, user-friendly platform, and wide spread adoption rates across the country,” said Sheriff Bill Benedict.

“Their company-owned redundant data centers help ensure our data is safe and that messages are delivered quickly to thousands of individuals within minutes.”

Registration for this notification service is customized, allowing residents to choose which alerts they’d like to sign up for and their preferred manner of receipt.

Residents can select several different methods including landline, cellphone, email, text message, TTY or a combination.

Residents also can keep track of alerts in the county with the CodeRED application for smartphones.

Those who wish to sign up for the new service can visit sheriff/.
