CodeRED Mobile Alert App Description & Overview
Thousands of public safety organizations across the United States and Canada use the CodeRED community notification system to initiate emergency notifications. The CodeRED Mobile Alert app enables subscribers to receive these notifications directly to their personal cell phone whether at home, on the road, or traveling around the country. Alerts are initiated by authorized public safety officials to deliver location-based notifications and are not issued by Emergency Communications Network or its staff.
Free alerts available*
- Missing persons
*PLEASE NOTE: If the public safety agency covering your current location is not subscribed to the CodeRED service, you will not receive alerts through this application. If your city or state does not currently subscribe to CodeRED, contact your local public safety organization today to let them know your community would benefit from this service.
• Enable location services on your phone.
• The app also features the ability to view local radar footage for the past hour and satellite imagery of the previous 24 hours.
• The CodeRED Mobile Alert app comes with a complimentary 30-day trial of CodeRED Mobile Weather Alerts that automatically notifies U.S.-based subscribers of severe weather. The optional CodeRED Weather Warning add-on is $0.99/year, but it is NOT required to purchase in order to receive emergency, general, and missing person alerts.
• Your app account and the account you create for your community’s CodeRED system are NOT associated with each other. You must create separate accounts.

CodeRED Mobile Alert Reviews
By What is the problem??
Alert radius settings don't work, I was getting alerts for events well outside of my set radius. When the alert sounds (and believe me, you can't miss it) and you try to open the app from the alert notification it crashes every time.
I have downloaded this app 3 times, stubborn I guess. When I attempt to use it, all I get is an error message. It is a useless app, so don't waste your time. Hopefully something better will be available soon.
Useless - inability to login makes app useless
Unable to login due to app error rendering the app useless.
No clue provided to indicate why or if this is a known issue.
Several other reviews already staying this.
Feels like another company running out of the garage that can't keep up with initial success.
Can't sign in worthless!
By Texas trip
Attending a business meeting in Texas and received a tornado warning. No sirens or other alerts in the hotel. I delayed my meeting until the storm passed. Well done. Thanks!
Constant GPS use kills your phone
The concept is a good one. But the implementation of that concept in this app leaves a lot to be desired. To work as designed, it needs to know your geolocation constantly, which means it's using your GPS *constantly*, draining your phone's battery in record time. That was my experience, the very first day I installed it (yesterday), and I deleted it last night. What good is an emergency app if it kills your phone so fast that you wont get the notifications anyway??
Alert sounds are horrible
There is no way I want to be alerted by those horrible choices of sounds. I'll keep myself informed some other way that doesn't give me a headache. Ugh.
Can't Log In
The app is pointless. I can't log in and I can see that there are alerts, but I can't see what they are. Don't waste your time.
Worthless! Use Web
Can't sign in; therefore nothing works.
Updated version hasn't fixed the ongoing issues
I still can't login to the app. It used to work when it was first launched but it's fussy and hard to use (I am a techy). Feels like no one is supporting this app and I can't tell if the new version is working because I still can't login. Many others can't login either.
This app is supposed to provide notifications in time of emergency. I'd hate to rely on this app in the event of a wildfire, tornado or flood. Don't waste your money.
When you view the map it will have a red dot with the listed number of alerts. You have to tap on the alert number. Then you will have to tap a "Red Cross" sign. After, a bubble with "emergency" will pop up and next to "emergency" it will have a circled "i" click on the "i" to view the actual info for the alert.
I did not have to sign up. I simply downloaded and skipped all options.
The location options are only: never or always.
I've had maybe 2 minutes with this app so I can't really rate it. I have not experienced an alert, yet. I just wanted to respond to the other comments that said you couldn't few the alert. (Note: I did not have to pay $0.99 to view the alerts)
This app has a renew subscription option and it doesn't say it's .99 cents until you click to approve. I hit the home to get out and it charged me the .99 because it registered my fingerprint. This app says how many alerts are nearby but will not load what they are. All I want is a text when there are parking bans in dorchester and I can't get them when I need them because the distance limit is 25 miles.
Poor design, no texts were available for me because the "settings" button just spins and says "loading".
