Grand Forks city, county to deliver emergency notices by phone

GRAND FORKS - Grand Forks city and county has started using a system that can send emergency notices to residents’ phones, the city said Friday.

The Code Red system, which Polk County is also using, will deliver messages to residents of specific areas or all of Grand Forks County.

The city say businesses, individuals with unlisted numbers, those who changed their number within the past year and those with cell phones as their main number should register online.

Street addresses will be needed to ensure the messages reach specific areas.
