CodeRED Emergency Notifications

CodeRED Alerts

Brunswick County uses CodeRED as part of the County’s effort to continuously improve communications during emergency situations within Brunswick County. Through the alert system, emergency alert notifications are sent by the emergency communications center in a variety of communication methods such as:

  • Landline
  • Cellular
  • SMS (Text Messaging)
  • Email
  • TDD/TTY device

To register or update your information, click here or the button that says, “Register for CodeRed.”

After registering, you can opt to download the CodeRED Mobile Alert app to receive these notifications directly to your mobile device. These mobile push notifications deliver relevant, location-based alerts based on GPS location to ensure you receive critical information when you are in a CodeRED client’s jurisdiction anywhere in the country. The app is available on the App Store and Google Play. To download the app, click here or the button that says, “Download the App.”

In the case of an emergency, you may choose to receive notifications via one or all of these communication methods. It’s recommended that you register several media options to receive messages in the event a particular communication device is unavailable.


If you need assistance registering online you may contact CodeRED by email or by calling Brunswick County Emergency Services at (910) 253-5383.

How to be prepared for an emergency

  • Know your zone. Visit the NC Department of Public Safety’s Know Your Zone webpage to view the areas most at risk of storm surges and flooding in Brunswick County.
  • Create an evacuation plan. When planning where to evacuate, we recommend moving inland. Make sure to find a place to stay in advance that is outside of typical affected areas and that is not in flood-prone areas.
  • Prepare an emergency kit. An emergency kit is vital for your survival in situations where help might not be easily accessible due to power outages, flooding, and road damage.
  • Stay informed. During an emergency, stay tuned to reliable local media outlets and Brunswick County on TwitterFacebook, and Nextdoor for continuous updates. You can also subscribe to receive email updates from the County to stay updated on media releases and important announcements.
  • Sign up for the Special Needs Registry. Residents are strongly encouraged to sign up for the Brunswick County Special Needs Registry if they have additional needs in functional areas.
