Cambria Alerting and Response Engagement System (CARES) 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.
No one should automatically assume that Cambria County emergency officials have your contact information. We urge all individuals and businesses to use the below buttons to enroll and get the mobile app.
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.
