CodeRED calls to come from 701 area code
The CodeRED program, which alerts Cass and Clay county residents to severe storms and other emergencies, will now send phone messages from a familiar 701 area code, Fargo city officials said Monday in a news release.
Previously, these calls came from numbers with 866 and 855 area codes, and the unrecognizable codes led some people to disregard the calls or assume they were from telemarketers, according to the release.
CodeRED emergency calls will now come from (701) 364-CODE (2633); CodeRED non-emergency calls will come from (701) 364-1277; and CodeRED weather calls will continue to come from (800) 566-9780, the release said.
Residents are urged to enter these numbers into their cellphones with labels such as “CodeRED emergency” and “CodeRED non-emergency,” so they appear when a call is received. To sign up for CodeRED, visit www.cityoffargo.com/CodeRED.
