LITCHFIELD - A community notification system is now available for residents of Meeker County. The Sheriff's Office says they've launched the new CodeRED system, which sends important alerts and time-sensitive messages.

The service is customized, allowing residents to choose which alerts they'd like to sign up for, and how they'd prefer to receive them: landline, cell phone, email, or text message.

The alerts can be specific to streets, neighborhoods, or regions.

Also, you can keep track of Meeker County alerts with the CodeRED Mobile App, which notifies you of real-time alerts in the area.
