 Polk County To Use "Alert Polk" Emergency Notification System 


Beginning February 1, 2017, Polk County will be using “Alert Polk” during situations that may affect the health, safety, and welfare of Polk County residents. Polk County will no longer be using Code Red as their notification vendor.

·         If you are already registered with Code Red online, you will need to re-register for Alert Polk at www.alertpolk.com. 

·         If you completed a Code Red Registration Card and sent it in to PCSO Crime Prevention, your information has already been downloaded into the "Alert Polk" system - so no further action is required. Should you need to update your information, contact Crime Prevention at 863-298-6677.   

The County’s new system, "Alert Polk," allows designated officials to send emergency messages to landline & cellphone numbers, texts, and email addresses in the affected geographic area.  When you register for emergency notifications, you'll also have the option of receiving community informational alerts.   

Visit www.alertpolk.com to register and for additional information.
