Tornado sirens and “CodeRed” Reverse 911 to test countywide.

Kit Carson County Sheriff Tom Ridnour announced today that the Kit Carson County Communications Center will be testing the tornado sirens and the CodeRed systems on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015.

Sirens are scheduled to be sounded at the following times and places:
10:00 a.m. — Burlington
10:05 a.m. — Bethune
10:10 a.m. — Stratton
10:15 a.m. — Vona
10:20 a.m. — Seibert
10:25 a.m. — Flagler
10:30 a.m ---- County wide test of the “CodeRed” system.
Following the initial siren at each location, the all clear will be sounded.

Also if you do not get the CodeRed alert after we do the test please go to click on CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment (located above and to the right) and sign up all your phones to receive CodeRed alerts. It will ask you to create an account so you are able to register your phones and address. The reason for the address is the system calls phone numbers based on address as the communications center is able to do specific areas within the county.


Register your home phone and/or mobile phone to receive notifications in an emergency. CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment.
