The Washington County Public Health Department and Washington County Sheriff’s Office has implemented a Mass Notification System named “Code RED”.

Code RED is a web-based system allowing a large number of regional citizens to be contacted in a very short period of time, by a geographically based delivery of phone and text messaging. The system uses the latest in mass-notification technology making the system very easy to use.

Dellwood’s contract with Washington County provides our residents the ability to create their own account at no cost; at any time, Dellwood residents can add or remove numbers they want the Code RED system to call. This is a City/County partnership that truly benefits all of us. To sign up for Code RED, go to and follow instruction links on the page.

Code RED Widget

Code RED just started offering a notification widget that shows the last notifications put out by the various Washington County agencies. The Widget can be downloaded for free at:
