CodeRED, by Onsolve is a mass notification software in which the City and County of Broomfield can send critical communications to residents and business owners in affected areas during emergencies.
The CodeRED Mobile Alert app provides advanced, real-time, location-specific alerts. You will receive a notification when you are within a geographic proximity to a warning area. For instance, you might be visiting a friend or shopping at a location that is within the warning area. The app will detect your proximity and provide you with the same warning given to those who live and work in that area. The free mobile app is available at the App Store and Google Play.
