Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - From police incidents to disaster response, the city of Duluth is rolling out a new warning system to inform you about emergencies

Officials are billing CodeRED as a high-speed emergency notification service to give residents a heads up on emergencies through telephone calls, text messages and emails.

It's geographically based and will notify those who sign up about police and fire emergencies, public utility interruptions and weather emergencies.

Signing up only takes several minutes.

You're able to use either your home address or work address for alerts.

Once subscribed to CodeRED you will receive a notification. The goal is to give residents multiple ways to receive warnings using the most effective tools available to residents in an emergency situation.

The city is expected to send out a test call on December 2nd.
