The Delta County Code Red system was used to alert the area to the potential threat, asking citizens to remain indoors and to alert 911 of any suspicious activity. Later the system was used again to notify the community the subjects had been taken into custody.
Landlines are automatically entered into the system. Cell phone users who wish to sign up for the emergency alert notifications should go to the Delta County website at www.deltacounty.com and click on the "Notify Me" tab on the left side. You can also subscribe to the Code Red Alerts by clicking on the "Code Red" button.
