CodeRED - Emergency Preparedness

Buncombe County has a new emergency and mass notification system provider. We are encouraging all residents to stay informed and make the switch to CodeRED today!

What is CodeRED?

Here is what you need to know.

Along with emergency and critical messages, the CodeRED notification system will also enhance community engagement via the release of important but non-emergency information such as vaccine site notifications, inclement weather closures and schedule changes, and other county service information.

If residents have previously signed up for Nixle BC Alerts, they will need to re-register in order to continue receiving notifications after June 15.

NOTICE: Multiple language selection preferences are available once you set up an account.

Current alerts to choose from:

  • Emergency
  • General
    • Recreation Services
    • Governing
    • COVID-19
  • Weather

For CodeRED support, please call 1-866-939-0911. For all other questions email prteam@buncombecounty.org.
