City to Utilize CodeRED Emergency Notification System
Sign Up to Receive Text, Phone & Email Alerts
The City of Sioux City has contracted with OnSolve to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides city staff the ability to quickly deliver messages to individuals in targeted areas or the entire city via text, email or phone. The City of Sioux City will utilize the CodeRED platform to send emergency alerts related to snow emergencies, boil water warnings and water main breaks to communicate critical information with our citizens. An option to receive updates regarding public transit delays and garbage and recycling delays is also available.
The easiest way to enroll for CodeRED notifications is from a mobile phone. Residents can text AlertSiouxCity to 99411 to receive a direct link to Sioux City’s Community Notification Enrollment (CNE) page. Residents may also sign up to receive notifications by visiting www.sioux-city.org/alerts. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code and primary phone number. Additional phone numbers and email addresses can be entered as well. CodeRED provides an easy and secure method for inputting information and the data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes.
Communications & Public Engagement Specialist Anne Westra said, “An emergency notification system is only as good as the telephone number database supporting it. If your phone number or email address isn’t in the database, you won’t be texted, emailed or called. We encourage everyone to sign up for the CodeRED emergency alert system to keep citizens aware of critical and timely information.”
