Delta County Alerts is the official reverse emergency notification system for Delta County and parts of Gunnison (Somerset, McClure Pass, County Road-12 and County Road-265) and Montrose County (Maher/Crystal Creek) that Delta County Dispatch services. Delta County Dispatch and emergency management will use the Delta County Alerts system to send official, real-time focused alerts to members of the public about potential life safety issues happening in your neighborhood and what steps residents may need to stay safe.
Yes, due to the transition from CodeRED to Delta County Alerts, we need all Delta County residents to register for the new system to ensure we have complete and accurate contact information in the notification system to include: address, cell phone, home phone (if applicable), email, and cell phone number. Use of the CodeRED system by Delta County will end on January 15, 2023. If you previously created an account with CodeRED, that online account will stop working in January 2023 and you need to create a new account online with Delta County Alerts.
Great question! We recommend you create a contact in your cell phone contacts with the below information so you can easily recognize emergency alerts coming to your phone!

YES - we highly recommend that everyone provide a home and/or work physical address when registering. The Delta County Alerts system works best to notify you of incidents near your home when the system has a physical address programmed into the system. If we do not have your address, the system will not be able to send geo-targeted alerts or critical weather alerts. We also recommend that you register your children's school address on your account so you can be alerted to public safety issues alerts near the school.
Note, regardless of whether you register your full address, the system will prompt all users to provide the following information to assist us in sending emergency notifications to geographical regions of the county:
No, the information you provide will only be used by local system administrators to send you alerts. Your contact information will never be sold to an outside entity.
