CodeRED Emergency Notification System
Seconds Count In An Emergency!
Otero County and the Town of Fowler have instituted the CodeRED Emergency Notification System - an ultra high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications.

THIS SYSTEM WILL ONLY BE USED FOR EMERGENCY PURPOSES.
