Huntsville/Walker County will be utilizing the CodeRED Emergency Notification System on 11/14/13 to call the entire community.

The calls will be in the AFTERNOON and will continue until the entire database has been attempted. This call will give Huntsville/Walker County personnel the chance to operate the system as if there has been a community wide disaster.

The message that is being delivered directs recipients to the City of Huntsville and Walker County web site to add additional contact numbers, and it also asks that recipients spread the word by mentioning the system to family, friends and neighbors.

Danny Pierce, Walker County Judge, suggests that “all individuals and businesses should take the time to visit the city/county website and add contact information to include cellular phones and other non-traditional phones as well as email and text addresses. If your contact information is not in the database you will not receive a call when an urgent message is sent.”

In particular, businesses should register, as well as individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number recently, and those who use a cellular phone exclusively or have VoIP phones (such as Vonage) as their primary numbers.

Pierce urges citizens to log onto the Walker County website at and follow the CodeRED link at the bottom of the page or the City of Huntsville website and follow the Emergency Notifications link to the left of the page. Those without Internet access may call 936-435-8001 Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm. Required information includes a street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes) for location purposes and a primary phone number. Additional phone numbers, email and text addresses may also be entered.
