Glenn County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a test of the CodeRED and Nixle mass notification systems the morning of Wednesday, September 25, 2019. The alerts will be sent out to everyone who has registered their contact information in CodeRED Glenn County and Glenn County Sheriff’s Office Nixle alerts, as well as all traditional landline phones within Glenn County. The alert may be received in all registered forms including voice phone call, text, email, and through the CodeRED app. This is only a drill to test the functionality of the system and is NOT an actual emergency. This drill is conducted annually in September as part of National Preparedness Month.


“CodeRED and Nixle are critical to our ability to notify residents in an emergency. CodeRED is our primary mode for emergency notifications as it is flexible and allows us to tailor the alert to the situation. It allows us to target and deliver the alert to a geographic area, such as the area of an evacuation order, or notify everyone registered within the county. Nixle provides a broad form of contact through text and email. It is often used for general community level alerts but is used as a secondary mode for broad based emergency notifications,” said Amy Travis, Deputy Director of Emergency Services. “Residents are strongly encouraged to register for both CodeRED and Nixle.”
