Dubuque County and the City of Dubuque will utilize the CodeRED Emergency Notification System to call all county residents and businesses during the week of August 13-17, 2018, to update/test the emergency notification database.
The automated test calls will made be during regular business hours and will continue until the entire database is called. The number that will show up on your caller ID will be 866-419-5000. This test will give Emergency Management personnel the chance to operate the system as if there has been a community-wide disaster while simultaneously updating and verifying the database. Calls will be based on geographic areas, so there is a chance that some residents may receive duplicate calls. No further action will be required of residents and business who receive the call; however, they may visit the Dubuque County website to add additional contact numbers, especially cell phone numbers, to their CodeRED profile.
