Code Red Subscription Information


Lamar Sirens Near Municipal Pool

Lamar Sirens Near Municipal Pool


Lamar was struck by several small scale tornadoes last year and in light of the devastation suffered in Oklahoma just days ago by a massive tornado storm, area residents should take note of a free emergency warning system provided for them as we enter a new season of potential severe storms.  Code Red is a program which allows subscribers to be notified of different types of emergency situations in the community.  The information can be transmitted via a computer, cell phone or land line, whatever means the subscriber selects on the application form. 

A subscription page is available for this area on either the City of Lamar website at and at the Prowers County website at  The information request is provided for by the Prowers County 911 Authority Board.  Residents who register can use their landline or cell phone numbers to receive the alerts.   

The registration process is quite simple and provides check boxes for the hearing impaired if text information is required to a special number for TDD or TTY devices.  Emergency information and alerts will be sent to a subscriber for events such as severe weather alerts, water contamination, evacuation notices and emergency routes, missing persons, fire or flood, bomb threats as well as hazardous material spills.  

Citizens can provide additional information if your address is a residence or commercial operation and if the building is a mobile home or manufactured one.  Post office box numbers will not be taken on the form. 

Additional emergency related information is also available from the city or county for pre-emergency supplies and preparations.  A folder has been published which outlines supplies and procedures a family would require to provide for their basic needs for 72 hours.  This information is based on the premise that your family would be without utilities or outside aid from any source for a three day period.
