The CodeRED™ system uses the geo-location of your cell phone to provide you an alert when traveling. The alert you receive from the mobile app is not the same alert you get for an alert involving your home. They are separate functions of the system. If you set up your cell phone for your home you will get those messages. Using the mobile alert, you will get messages that do not involve your home when your travel through an area that received an alert. For example, a wildfire in Jefferson county may include the roadway you are traveling on, as you enter the alert area your cell phone will receive that alert.
