- A CodeRED emergency message will have a caller ID of 866-419-5000. You can program this number into your cell phone as a contact. After you receive a message, you can dial this number to hear the message again. (CodeRED Automatic Severe Weather alerts will have a caller ID of 800-566-9780 for phone calls and a short code of 76993 for text notifications.)
- The CodeRED system will leave the message on an answering machine. If the line is busy, it will try two more times to connect.
- There are some circumstances that might prevent a message from being delivered:
- Your contact information has changed and you have not registered your new information.
- You only have a cordless phone and your power is out.
- Your line is busy for an extended period and your calls do not forward to voice mail.
- You have a privacy manager on your main phone and you did not register an alternate number.
