You can set up your account to alert you only by text vs a phone call for non-emergency messages. The system will not allow emergency messages to be by text only due to the emergent nature of an emergency. A phone call will be attempted as well as text if you set up the cell phone to receive text alerts.
During an emergency we are attempting to reach as many residents as possible. The emergency itself such as a wildfire may overload cell towers with phone calls as well as the landline network (lines are busy), the text may be the only message that is able to get through which is why including the text option is very important. The system will attempt to contact the resident 3 times before it times out.
Residents that have a solicitation blocker on the phone will not receive the entire message. The CodeRED™ system will assume the message for solicitation blockers are in fact your answering machine message, wait for the appropriate amount of time and deliver the message.

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.
