Todd County adopts CodeRED system

Test calls to be made week of June 13-17 to those enrolled

Todd County has implemented CodeRED Emergency Alert System to allow for public notifications in case of an emergency or other significant events which requires public notification.

This is a free service provided to all residents within Todd County and will notify you of emergency information through phone calls, text messages, emails and social media. 

The system will be used to keep the public informed of local events which may immediately impact safety.

Todd County Emergency Management encourages residents to take action and  register contact information for this service and to verify your home location during the enrollment process so notifications can be targeted that directly impact your home or business.

As part of the implementation process there will be a community “All Call” test during the week of June 13-17. All of the contract methods currently registered will receive an information test message from CodeRED sometime during the week.

The Todd County Sheriff’s office encourages the public to go to and click on the CodeRED logo which is located on the front page of the website. This will allow citizens to enter their contact information, including additional phone numbers, emails and text numbers to ensure that the data in our system is accurate and current. 

If you know of anyone who lives in Todd County who did not receive this information, encourage them to visit the Todd County website and enter their information.

Any questions about the CodeRED Community Notification may be directed to Todd County Emergency Management at 320-533-4697.

Wadena County also has the CodeRED Emergency Alert System. Residents can enroll on the county’s website at
