Kit Carson County Communications Director Shawn Franz has announced today that the Communications Center will be testing the tornado sirens and the CodeRed systems on Tuesday, March 8th, 2022.
Sirens are scheduled to be sounded at the following times and places:
10:00 a.m. — Burlington
10:05 a.m. — Bethune
10:10 a.m. — Stratton
10:15 a.m. — Vona
10:20 a.m. — Seibert
10:25 a.m. — Flagler
10:30 a.m. — Cheyenne Wells
10:35 a.m. — Kit Carson
10:45 a.m ---- Kit Carson and Cheyenne County wide test of the “CodeRed” system.
Following the initial siren at each location, the all clear will be sounded.
Starting April 12th, 2022 through October 11th, 2022 the all clear sirens will be tested every second Tuesday of the month. These tests will start at 10:00a.m. and go from Burlington across the county to Flagler, then Cheyenne Wells and the Town of Kit Carson.
Also if you do not get the CodeRed alerts after we do the test please go to https://kitcarsoncounty.colorado.gov/ or https://www.co.cheyenne.co.us/countydepartments/sheriff.htm and click on CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment and sign up all your phones to receive CodeRed alerts. It will ask you to create an account so you are able to register your phones and address. The reason for the address is the system calls phone numbers based on address as the communications center is able to do specific areas within the county.
