The Fresno Police Department in conjunction with Valley Crime Stoppers has implemented CodeRED, a high-speed emergency/community notification solution provided by Emergency Communications Network to help keep residents and businesses informed with important information that may immediately impact their safety.

See How CodeRed Works:

Please note: If you are unsure of whether your contact information is in the database or if you have recently moved or changed your telephone number, it is important to click on the above CodeRED emergency notifications link to add or update your information.

The Fresno Police Department will use the CodeRED system to notify the entire city or specific areas within the city of important information. The CodeRED system will deliver telephone calls, text messages and emails.  Messages may regard evacuations, police activity, missing children, boil water notices or other information.  Please listen to each message carefully.
