Regional Notification System
Washoe County has partnered with the Cities of Reno and Sparks to institute a telephone notification system for use in times of crisis. The system is known as "Code Red."
When a crisis occurs, local public safety officials have three methods to alert the public:
While no system can ever be guaranteed to be disaster proof, by using these three methods local officials make every effort to keep the public informed.
CITIZENS: If you have an unlisted number, or wish to list your cell phone or work phone for emergency notification, fill out the form on the enrollment page.
Again, Washoe County makes no guarantees. However, by signing up you will be included in the database for emergency notifications.
