Pierce County will activate CodeRED on Aug. 5
Pierce County will test the CodeRED Emergency Notification System Aug. 5 by calling all numbers in the database. The calls will begin at 1 p.m.
Officials recommend that all people should register for the alert system, especially businesses and individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number recently, and those who use a cellular phone exclusively or have VoIP phones (such as Vonage) as their primary numbers.
Log onto the Pierce County website at http://www.co.pierce.wi.us/ and follow the CodeRED link in the bottom right corner of the home page. Those without Internet access may call 715-273-6751 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Required information includes a street address and a primary phone number.
