Summit County Alert

Summit County Office of Emergency Management uses Summit County Alert (powered by the CodeRED software system) to send emergency notifications by phone, email and text to keep community members informed of events such as evacuation notices, utility outages, water main breaks, wildfires, floods and hazardous materials spills. 

SC Alert is also used to communicate non-life-safety information, such as planned road closures, school delays/cancellations, community meetings, utility repairs and service interruptions.

On September 30, 2016, SC Alert switched from Cooper Notification (its previous software platform) to the CodeRED platform. We encourage all SC Alert subscribers to log into the new system to create a managed account. Once inside your managed account, you can select Community Groups and identify two specific physical addresses for which you want to be notified of any emergency activity or information.

Using SC Alert


We deliver SC Alert notifications by phone, email, text and mobile-app alerts. Individuals and businesses may add as many phone numbers, email and text numbers as they choose.

SC Alert is compatible with TDD/TTY devices for those with hearing impairments.
