In Yuba County, the very best way to get dedicated emergency notifications is through the CodeRED system.
When activated, the CodeRED system has the ability to send a pre-recorded message to thousands of telephone customers every minute. If you receive such a call, listen carefully to the instructions. Information may include the nature of the emergency, the need to evacuate or shelter in place, shelter locations and how to receive further information. The recorded message will be repeated, allowing you to write down any necessary information.
