Community Alert Message

This is a community alert message from the Surry County 911 Communications Center. Please be advised that on Wednesday, December 13th we will be changing the short code (number) from which you receive SMS text message and Weather Warning messages, to 76993. This new number should be programmed into your mobile devices to ensure awareness for future CodeRED alerts. Please note, a short code is a 5-digit number that CodeRED uses to send messages to mobile devices and the number that comes across your mobile when an alert is delivered. Once you have programmed this number into your mobile under the proper name, all messages will display as addressed from "CodeRED Alert". No further action is required on your part.
