Mandan residents are being encouraged to sign up for something called "CodeRED" notifications. CodeRED is a community notification system, that reaches out to residents when important information comes through and needs to be shared.

What Kind Of Information Gets Sent Out?

If you're wondering, it's not going to send you a bunch of spam or useless information. According to the Mandan e-Messenger, you would get notified of things like missing persons, water main breaks, and other thigs that might be specific to your location/personal or neighboring property.

The source says it's a good tool to let people living in specific areas what is going on and what might affect them, their homes, and property. It also said the system may not always be used for such instances, but it is certainly something the city will be utilizing.

This is something you might want to consider, if you want to stay up-to-date on things that might impact your health, general safety, travel plans, and personal property.

What Do You Need To Do & How Does It Work?

It's actually really simple. If you want to sign up, all you need to do is text "AlertMortonND" to 99411. You can also go to the CodeRED alert website and register there. Once you've done that, you will be all set to receive text messages about the Mandan community.

If you're wondering, no, it does not cost anything to use this service. The only expense you might encounter are those from your cellphone carrier. Standard message and data rates apply.

Anyway, just wanted to share a little useful information for you here. Hope this helps!

See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
