Kewaunee County warns of CodeRED scam

Kewaunee County is trying to protect its residents about a new phone scam. On Monday, an Algoma resident received a phone call saying it was from the CodeRED Emergency Alert System. The caller told her to call one of two phone numbers in regards to a refund. Instead, she dialed the Kewaunee County Emergency Management to make sure it was a scam. Kewaunee County no longer uses the CodeRED system for mass residential notification. They now use the “Rave Alert” system. Kewaunee County Emergency Management Director Tracy Nollenberg says the system is free to join and they will never call about money.



Nollenberg advised that if you do get a scam call like this one to just ignore it or report it to the Kewaunee County Emergency Services. She added it’s a good idea to sign up for the Rave Alert system Kewaunee County now uses. It replaced the CodeRED system on January 1st, 2018.
