Louisville Citywide Emergency Alert System

The system uses a variety of methods — text alerts, emails and phone calls — to warn citizens about potentially life-threatening events, including severe weather.

“The Code Red system is easy to use and gets information to people quickly so they can protect themselves and their families,” Mayor Fischer said.

Citizens may choose which types of alerts and which delivery methods they wish to receive. Mayor Fischer encouraged citizens to especially sign up for text alerts since they are quick and citizens generally always have their cell phones with them.
