CodeRED Calls Get Local Numbers

Posted: Updated:
CodeRED emergency/non-emergency calls to the residents of Cass and Clay Counties will now come from local phone numbers.

In the past, these important calls had come from numbers with 866 and 855 area codes. The unrecognizable numbers caused some residents to disregard the calls or assume they were coming from telemarketers.

“CodeRED is a vital resource used to reach out to our communities. We want to make sure every effort is being made to ensure residents are answering the calls and getting the facts they need to make informed decisions.” said Fargo Fire Chief Steve Dirksen. 

CodeRED calls will now come from the following numbers:

  • CodeRED emergency: 701-364-CODE (2633)
  • CodeRED non-emergency: 701-364-1277
  • CodeRED weather will remain the same, 800-566-9780. 
Residents are encouraged to enter these phone numbers into their mobile phones with easy to recognize IDs, such as “CodeRED emergency” and “CodeRED non-emergency,” so they appear prominently when a call arrives.

Residents can sign up for CodeRED online at www.cityoffargo.com/CodeRED
