The Cameron County Emergency Communication District (CCECD) plans, implements, funds and oversees the critical infrastructure (equipment, software, connectivity and support) used by Public Safety entities to receive 911 calls and dispatch emergency responders. CCECD is NOT the same entity as the Cameron County “government”and DOES NOT provide any emergency dispatching service or emergency provider/responder services.
When there’s a local emergency… will you know?
CodeRED is a FREE service provided by Cameron County 911 Emergency Communication District that will call your cell phone and send you an email alert informing you of a local emergency and the instructions to follow. You will automatically receive alerts on your home telephone but it is unrealistic to think that you will
always be home during an emergency situation. Cameron County residents who sign up will be contacted by local authorities about emergencies like HazMat incidents, missing persons, evacuations, dangerous persons and shelter-in-place. That is why it is important to register your cell phone.
