Weather alert system receives upgrade

The Denton Fire Depart­ment’s Office of Emergency Management has upgraded its early weather alerting system to allow residents to receive win­ter storm warnings.

The city of Denton provides severe weather notifications through a service called CodeRED Weather Warning.

Winter storm warnings are sent to residents through text and e-mail moments after an alert is issued by the National Weather Service.

Notifications are only available to city of Denton residents who have opted in to receive the CodeRED alerts.

To register for the winter storm warnings, residents should visit the city’s website at and click on the CodeRED link.

Residents may also select severe thunderstorm, flash flood and tornado warnings through telephone calls to their homes and businesses, e-mail and text messages to their cellphones.
