Every North State county has a system they use to let you know when to evacuate in an emergency. The one you’ve most likely heard about is called Code Red. It’s used in nine North State counties – Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Plumas, Shasta, Siskiyou, Trinity and Yuba. The software is owned by a private company that sends alerts to either your cell phone or landline during an emergency.
