Public Service Announcements



Cambria Alerting and Response Engagement System 

Cambria County emergency alert system is an informational tool, keeping residents safe

In an event of an emergency, Cambria County officials issue alerts through CodeRED, a high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system allows messages to be quickly delivered to targeted areas of
Cambria or the county as a whole.     

On March 3, Cambria County will be conducting a performance test of the system at 10:00am, contacting everyone in the County who is currently in the emergency database. Receiving a test message will assure that residents will receive a message when an actual alert is issued by County officials. Residents who have not enrolled to receive emergency CodeRED notifications or did not receive a test message should immediately visit the County website and click the CodeRED logo to enroll. 

No one should automatically assume that Cambria County emergency officials have your contact information. Weurge all individuals and businesses to visit www.cambriacountypa.gov, and click on the CodeRED link.  Those without Internet access may call County Customer Service Center (814) 472-2050, Monday through Friday, (8 AM-5 PM) to supply their information over the phone. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number, additional phone numbers can be entered as well.

CodeRED gives those who want to be included an easy and secure method for inputting information. The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes such as in the case of missing children, boil water advisories and shelter-in-place alerts.

Any questions should be directed to the Cambria County Emergency Management Office, 814-472-2050.
