TIPS on registering for the Gilpin ENS:
Gilpin County has upgraded the emergency notification system for our residents. The system, CodeRED, is a high-speed telephone emergency notification service allowing county officials the ability to deliver pre-recorded information to either targeted areas or the entire county. The system would be implemented in situations such as a land wildfire, in which residents in the immediate area and surrounding areas would need to be notified to take appropriate steps to safeguard life and property.
CodeRed has the capability of making up to 60,000 phone calls an hour and will attempt to deliver the message to each residence up to 3 times in order to maximize the number of delivered messages. It can deliver the pre-recorded message to a live person or an answering machine. The message will consist of six key elements:
1. Statement that it is a CodeRED Emergency message from Gilpin
County Sheriff’s Office
