Watersmeet Township Announces Implementation of Emergency Alert System

The most beneficial way to receive instantaneous information on safety threats and severe weather throughout Watersmeet Township is now one e-mail, text, or phone call away.

Watersmeet Township has partnered with CodeRED® to offer FREE emergency alerts for weather and traffic warnings, and critical emergencies through e-mail, phone and/or text messages to residents and visitors of Watersmeet. In order to receive these alerts, individuals must enroll at https://accountportal.onsolve.net/watersmeet or by texting “NIMROD” to “24639”.

Enrollment is fast and easy and can be completed in just a few minutes. Once registered, individuals will automatically receive weather and traffic warnings, and critical emergency notifications.  It is strongly recommended to include CodeRED as a new contact in the user’s phone under the following phone number 206.536.3695 to always know when a CodeRED alert is being sent and to ensure it is not mistaken for something else.

Any message regarding a threat of life or property to our residents and community will be disseminated using CodeRED.  Only Township officials have the authority to send out alerts for a variety of situations such as boil water notices, gas leaks, evacuation notices, police activity, fire emergencies, and missing persons.  This is a community alert system to ensure you remain informed of critical information. General announcements, lost pets, meeting notices, etc. will continue to be sent via email through the Watersmeet news subscription service.

CodeRED offers options on the types of alerts you can receive and how you would like to receive them. Phone calls, texts and emails are all options upon signing up. It gives those who want to be included an easy and secure method for inputting information. The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes. If anyone has questions about CodeRED or needs assistance with signing up they may contact the Watersmeet Township CodeRed help-line at 906.366.0112 (leave message).

A test alert will be sent on Monday, April 8, 2024, at 1:00 p.m. CST
