About this app

Thousands of public safety organizations across the United States and Canada use the CodeRED community notification system to initiate emergency notifications. The CodeRED Mobile Alert app enables subscribers to receive these notifications directly to their personal cell phone whether at home, on the road, or traveling around the country. Alerts are initiated by authorized public safety officials to deliver location-based notifications and are not issued by OnSolve or its staff.


Free alerts available*


• Emergency
• General
• Missing person


*PLEASE NOTE: If the public safety agency covering your current location is not subscribed to the CodeRED service, you will not receive alerts through this application. If your city or state does not currently subscribe to CodeRED, contact your local public safety organization today to let them know that your community would benefit from this service.


Helpful hints:


• Enable location services on your phone.
• Your app account and the account you create for your community’s CodeRED system are NOT associated with each other. You must create separate accounts.
• The CodeRED Mobile Alert app comes with a complimentary 30-day trial of CodeRED Enhanced Weather subscription that automatically alerts US-based subscribers of severe weather. The optional CodeRED Weather Warning add-on is an additional $0.99/year, but it is NOT required to receive emergency, general and missing person alerts.
• The app also features the ability to view local radar footage for the past hour and satellite imagery of the previous 24 hours.

As many reviewers have been saying, this app used to be great but it no longer works. Every time I open it (when I know there's an alert in my area), I get a notification (through Android system notifications) that says "This is required to send your current location status to the server." Tapping on the notification simply takes me into the CodeRED app. The notification is not cleared until I force close the app. Useless! (I have granted all location permissions in settings, to no avail.)

Good idea, but the app has no control over what my nearby towns think is an emergency. This morning it was a water main break that had been fixed in a town 30 miles from me, and of course yesterday it was the fact that that same water break had happened! There should be a way to just turn on the most extreme weather related or abduction related emergencies. Uninstalling.

App is buggy and crashes when navigating some menu options. Doesn't let you filter warnings by location. Notifications are unhelpful, uninformative. It doesn't request the system permission to access location data at all times, so it only notifies when you open the app. The satellite and radar overlays are completely opaque, hiding the map underneath. They should be partially transparent. Just a poorly executed design. The concept is good but the implementation needs work.
