Texarkana has implemented the CodeRED® Emergency/Weather Warning Notification System – an ultra-high-speed telephone communication service. This system allows us to telephone all or affected areas of the city in case of an emergency or severe weather situation.

The CodeRED® Emergency/Weather Warning Notification System delivers customized prerecorded messages directly to homes and businesses, to a person or to an answering machine. In order to be notified via the CodeRED® Emergency/Weather Warning Notification System, your phone number must be included in the telephone database for this system. The database can include business, unlisted, and cell numbers, as well. To assure your phone numbers are included, sign up today.  Click here to sign up now.
