Receive Baca County Emergency Management Alerts on Cellular Phones, Pagers or by E-mail

 

The Baca County Division of Emergency Management is offering a Public Alert Notification Service that can be used to pass important information along to the public and emergency services personnel in the event of an emergency or disaster situation. Information that is disseminated out to the public is from the Division of Emergency Management and maybe gathered from various different sources. None of the information submitted to DEM will be used for any other purpose and will not be sold or given to any third party. Some of the alerts/notifications that maybe sent to subscribers are weather alerts, road closures, public health alerts, as well as other important public information. After subscribing to the alert system you will receive a confirmation to your device or email and will confirm that you have been added to the system. The confirmation will be received within 72 hours after signing up. (If you receive a text message you can go to www.bacadem.com for more detailed information)

 

You can also send a text message from your text enabled mobile device such as a Cell phone to balert@seregion.com and include Opt In and your Name in the message. Make sure to add balert@seregion.com to your address list so the emails will not be sent to the junk mail folder.

Baca County does not charge for the service; however users are responsible for text message charges, if any, from their wireless carrier.

You can sign up and get alerts at two places, (example, Email and Cell phone) if you just want to receive alerts by email do not put your cell or pager number or provider.

NOAA All-Hazards Alert Radio (AKA: Weather Radio)

Springfield is home to a National Weather Service Weather Radio Transmitter, WNG-664 transmitts on a frequency of 162.400 MHz. The S.A.M.E. code for Baca County is 008009. Please visit the National Weather Service S.A.M.E. Code link on the left for other county codes in the United States.

The Baca County Division of Emergency Management encourages all citizens and business owners to purchase a NOAA All-Hazards Alert Radio to alert you of emergency situations.

All-Hazard radios are the fastest alert that a critical incident is or will occur in your area. Most of the messages that are heard on the NOAA All-Hazards radios are weather related however, Emergency Management can broadcast other important life-safety messages over the NOAA airwaves.

 

CodeRED


Baca County can activate a CodeRED alert in a specified area by using an online or telephone system any time, day or night.

Emergency Management officials can map out the affected area, record the message and send it on its way with the click of a mouse. Within moments, calls simultaneously reach the affected community to deliver warnings and critical safety instructions.

The CodeRED uses the county's 911 database as its source for telephone numbers and is able to process up to 1,000 numbers per minute.

The system also has a callback feature that allows you to call back the number to receive the message. CodeRED will redial unsuccessful numbers up to three times to ensure that the critical message is delivered.

Only published numbers are dialed unless a non-published number has been added manually to the system. CodeRED will leave a message if an answering machine picks up so that the critical message will be delivered.

If CodeRED reaches a busy signal, the system will try back three times to reach the intended party.


Tips on Receiving a Message from the CodeRED System

CodeRED messages will always come from the same number 1-866-419-5000. Answer the phone normally when you are receiving a CodeRED message.
