Montrose County Alerts

Montrose County is launching a new emergency notification system called Montrose Alerts powered by GEM. The new system is live and will officially replace CodeRed in January, 2023. Please take a quick couple minutes and complete the registration before an emergency strikes.

Montrose Alerts will be used to communicate critical public safety topics including evacuations, wildfire, flooding, and other emergency notifications. All residents, visitors, and family members living in Montrose County are encouraged to sign up for alerts.

We encourage you to sign up even if you are already registered for CodeRed. During the registration process, you can choose the types of alerts you receive and how to receive them, including landline phone, cell phone, text/SMS message, and email.

Be thorough with your registration! Be sure to complete all of these fields:
  • Name
  • Physical home address
  • Cell phone or landline numbers
  • Email address
  • Zip code
  • Fire District
It is critical that you enter your home address location to receive geo-targeted (location based) messages!
