REDDING, Calif. - The Redding Fire Department and SHASCOM 911 are encouraging people to sign-up for the 'Code Red' service, ahead of wildfire season.

SHASCOM 911 contracted with the Emergency Communications Network, LLC to provide the Code Red service to Shasta County in 2015. The systems allow SHASCOM 911 to communicate time-sensitive, personalized messages via voice mail, email, and text messaging to citizens regarding anything from evacuation notices to missing person alerts.

Local emergency officials said the system proved crucial during the 2018 Carr Fire, and has been used extensively by local law enforcement over the years.

"Living in the Redding area means that wildfire is a reality we face every year and Wildfire Preparedness is essential, including staying informed with Code Red," Fire officials and SHASCOM 911 said in a news release.

Click Here to sign up for Code Red. There is also an option to text the word “SHASTA911” to the number 99411 to receive a mobile link on your phone. The only information required for registration is the address, cell phone number, and cell phone service provider.
