Killeen residents reminded to sign up for Code Red Alerts during National Preparedness Month

New PSA shows citizens how to receive important updates on severe storms, flooding, tornadoes, etc.

The Emergency Management Department of the City of Killeen is rounding out National Preparedness Month with a public service announcement about the importance of subscribing to Code Red Alerts.


Code Red is an emergency notification system and the City is encouraging all citizens to sign up on our website,, under the Emergency Management section. There’s a two-minute registration process, then residents are notified of impending disasters or alerts to ensure everyone is kept safe and aware. The alerts come through as texts or email. Residents can also download the Code Red mobile alert app.


Here is a link to the Code Red PSA, featuring our Emergency Management Coordinator, Peter Perez:


September is observed as National Preparedness Month annually to raise awareness about the importance of being prepared to protect yourself, family and valuables at any time. Mayor Jose Segarra kicked off the month with PSA on overall preparedness, which is available on our City YouTube channel, as well as our social media channels and the Spectrum Government Channel 10. 


Residents are encouraged visit the official government website, to explore even more tips and resources available for National Preparedness Month.
