March 4, 2020–ROOSEVELT COUNTY, MT – Following a thorough evaluation and review of alerting systems, Roosevelt County has implemented CodeRED, a high-speed emergency mass notification service provided by Ormond Beach, FL based OnSolve, LLC.

The CodeRED system will serve as the backbone of the Roosevelt County Emergency Planning and Communications Outreach to both citizens and staff.  

The system sends:

– telephone calls

– text messages

– emails and

– posts to social media channels

to inform residents to better protect life and property. 

CodeRED was selected for its reliability and accuracy, as well as the system’s widespread adoption rates across the U.S.  

“CodeRED’s robust notification system will provide Roosevelt County officials with a reliable, easy-to-use interface to quickly deliver critical information to our citizens during emergencies. We are eager to use this innovative technology to enhance our emergency preparedness plans,” said DES Coordinator Lindsey McNabb.  

We anticipate using the system to notify residents of: 

– fires

– floods

– drinking water emergencies

– missing children notices and

– road closures. 

OnSolve has provided Roosevelt County an initial database of residential and business telephone numbers, however , all residents living within Roosevelt County are encouraged to visit:

to enroll their contact information including cell phone numbers, text and email addresses. 

No one should automatically assume they are in the emergency contact database. 

Public safety officials across the United States have credited CodeRED notifications for successfully:

– locating missing children
