– Stutsman County Emergency Manager Jerry Bergquist reports that a
county-wide test of the CodeRED mass notification system was
completed on Friday, February 17th,
by Stutsman County Communications. The test began at 1:03 pm and
included landlines, cell phones, TDD, text messaging, email, and
mobile app notifications.
Results of the testing
related to text messages and emails indicated that 100% of the text
and email messages were delivered without issue.
Results related to the
phone testing indicated that only 70% of the phone numbers registered
into the system received the test CodeRED message. The number
of people notified could be dramatically increased if individuals
would take the time to register their cell phone numbers with
CodeRED. Land line telephone numbers are already included in
the notification database. We will be working with telephone
service providers to review their information for accuracy.
