Code Red in Barron and Washburn Counties

posted May 15, 2017, 5:04 AM by Ryan Quinn
Emergency Management are urging all residents and 2nd home owners in Barron and Washburn County to register their contact information with the County mass notification system called - CodeRED. 

This free system will help to notify residents of emergency information through calls, text messages and emails and will be used to keep you informed on issues that impact your safety! CodeRED is a great tool for making emergency notifications - when needed. 

However, the system is only as a good as the database it is built upon. 

If you have a landline and are listed in the phone book, your phone number has already been loaded in the CodeRED system. 

However, more people are choosing to have cell phones only and that becomes challenging for the county to collect the necessary information to build the database. 

To address this problem, all residents are being URGED to go to the CodeRED site located on the Barron or Washburn County Webpage and register today.
