CoshoctonCountyhas an Emergency Telephone Calling System named
“CODE RED”. This calling system has the capability to call every phone in the county within a short period of time, or targeted areas as needed in the event of an emergency.

The phone numbers called are the ones recorded in a database of
Iphone and Android users - make sure to check out the new CodeRED Mobile
Alert App recently released. .
Designed to keep you informed and aware, the
CodeRED Mobile Alert App taps into the national CodeRED Emergency Notification
System and alerts subscribers located within the reach of a given notification
area generated by public safety officials. The App tracks your position, so no
matter where you are when an alert is issued, you will receive notifications
that affect you right on your mobile device.
Each resident of Coshocton County can now add additional phone number(s) to the data base to be sure they are contacted if a call is placed to notify them of an emergency situation. Your street/road address is very important so a call will only be placed to you if your address is affected by the emergency condition.
By using this capability, you can add not just your home number but a cell phone number if you would like to receive the call and text messages. Citizens can also register an email address for alerts to be sent to.
