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 OnSolve or its staff.

Ratings and Reviews
The premise of this app is great but how the developers have chosen to implement it is SO WRONG! How anyone can put a price tag on saving lives is morally outrageous! What this developer is charging you for is usually given free of charge via text message or automated phone call from most all local, state, city, and county governments. The app actually works which is why I rated it 2 stars instead of the 0 it deserves. The app will notify free users what they deem free emergency, general, and missing person notifications. Yet they want to charge you to get an alert that a tornado 🌪 is at your doorstep or a wall of water is getting ready to wash your home away. This is sickening to me and the developers should be highly ashamed of themselves! In my opinion; search your states, city, or counties website to find free ways to signup and receive life saving notifications for emergency events. By paying this developers price tag per life you are supporting this behavior!
As far as I can tell, most of the features of this app are great and the performance seems satisfactory in most areas. It’s not perfect, however. The satellite and RADAR map overlays do not happen, only the street map. I find this totally unacceptable and cannot believe that something like that could be missed in testing. One nice thing about the street map’ though, is that if you go into your account on a computer, you can actually correct where your location is pinpointed.
My logging in experience was confusing. First everything was fine, then my credentials were rejected. It turns out that there are two login addresses, apparently for two different parts of the outfit, which is not made clear, is counterintuitive, and, in my opinion, is rather stupid. Getting everything set-up and verified took some persistence, but I managed to do it without turning to Support.
About them: I used the provided link in the app settings to tell them about the map problems. My message never reached them, because the server rejected their address. Sounds a bit shady.
So, this community alert network that the emergency services of the county that I live in wanted me to sign up with, because we are being surrounded by wildfires, and which, supposedly, millions of people are relying on, doesn’t make sure their app works, doesn’t make it easy to sign up, and may not be on the up-and-up. You’d think they’re in office.
Could be a great notification system but needs work
I downloaded this app after it was recommended by my county. I travel all around the country and thought it would be a good tool for me because often I am in places that I am not familiar with. The alerts seem to come through late in the map overlays especially the radar is so jumpy it doesn’t match up with what other radar apps are showing. I like the concept and I hope that the creators will do work to make this a better app. It seems like a great idea but as of right now this version is not working for me.
