Kittson County uses the CodeRED messaging system to distribute emergency information and critical community alerts.  Examples include: hazardous weather warnings, evacuation notices and missing child reports.
Residents and businesses can sign up to receive emergency notifications via telephone, cell phone, text message and/or email.

If you cannot register online, you can call the County's Emergency Management Office at 218.843.2113 and speak with someone who can register for you.

  • A CodeRed emergency message will have a caller ID of 866.419.5000.  You can program this number into your cell phone as a contact.  After you receive a message, you can dial this number to hear the message again.  (CodeRED Automatic Severe Weather alerts will have a caller ID of 800.566.9780 for phone calls and a short code of 769993 for text notifications.)
