The Scott County Sheriff’s Office has upgraded its emergency mass notification system.  The system, CodeRED, is a high-speed telephone emergency notification service allowing public safety agencies the ability to deliver pre-recorded information to targeted areas within the county.

There are several types of situations which could lead to a notification from CodeRED, including-



 How to Receive Notifications



 Most Scott County Land Lines in area of the emergency and anyone who registers here

 Amber Alerts, Evacuations, Active Shooters, wildfire, etc.


 Go to this site, register, and click the "General Notifications" checkbox

 Road Closures, Utility Outages, Water Main breaks, etc.


 Go to this site, register, and click the "Weather Notifications" checkbox

 Tornado, Flash Flood, Thunderstorm or Winter Storm Warnings 


Note: CodeRED is provided as a supplemental emergency communication method and should not be relied upon exclusively.


CodeRED will attempt to deliver the message to each registered number up to 3 times in order to maximize the number of delivered messages.  The messages will consist of six key elements:

  1. Statement that it is a CodeRED emergency message from Scott County Sheriff’s Office.
  2. Time and date of the call.
  3. Scope of the emergency.
  4. Area(s) affected by emergency.
  5. Action that needs to be taken.
  6. Directions for obtaining more information.

Although many landline telephones are automatically registered with the emergency notification database, you are encouraged to go online and register your own personal information. By doing so, you will be ensuring that the data pertaining to you and your home is as accurate as possible.
