The mission of the Monroe County Emergency Management Agency is to protect the lives and property of Monroe County citizens before a disaster strikes through planning, training and mitigation and to reduce human suffering after a disaster strikes by coordinating Monroe County’s response and recovery efforts with assistance from local agencies, neighboring counties, the State of Illinois, Federal Agencies and volunteer organizations.
CodeRED is an ultra-high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications such as chemical spills, missing child or evacuation notices.
The service also allows consumers to opt-in for weather warnings.
To sign up for CodeRED and/or the weather warning portion, click here or the picture above.
We encourage all residents to add their cell phones and choose the text message options for the alerts that you would like. Text message notifications are faster than the calling features.
Standard text messaging fees apply from your carrier.
