El Dorado County Emergency Alert System
The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services alert and warning system provides a number of ways in which the county may contact the community in the event of an emergency such as evacuations due to wildfires, hazardous material spills, or urgent law enforcement operations.
The El Dorado County Office of Emergency Services partnered with CalOES to bring the El Dorado County Emergency Alerts notification service to residents and businesses by app, telephone, cell phone, text message, email, and social media when there is a threat to the health or safety of residents.
If you previously signed up for notifications through Code RED (El Dorado County's former alert system), you do not need to sign up again to continue receiving notifications. The information from CodeRED will migrate over to the new system. We do however encourage new registration as a better way to update your notification options. You may receive notifications from both El Dorado County Emergency Alerts and CodeRED during the transition period. However, we recommend that you go to https://www.smart911.com/smart911/ref/login.action?pa=edcgov and sign into El Dorado County Emergency Alerts to verify your information is correct. Your User ID should be your email address. If you forgot you User ID or need your password reset, click "Forgot User ID or Password".
If you do not want to receive emergency alerts you can be removed from the system by logging into your profile, Clicking Edit Account Settings and by selecting "REMOVE ACCOUNT".
You may wish to save the contact information for El Dorado County Emergency Alerts to avoid confusing it with a SPAM call or email. Telephone messaging will show a Caller ID of 530-621-7595. Emails will come from firstname.lastname@example.org. Text messages will come from a six-digit short code that may vary, which cannot be saved.
Information for the transition can be located at

What does that mean for you? As a homeowner, State law requires that you maintain a minimum of 100 feet of defensible space around all sides of your habitable structure. Beginning in June 2020, the County will begin conducting defensible space inspections in pre-identified areas, called County Emphasis Areas (CEAs). Additionally, local fire districts and CALFIRE will also be conducting defensible space inspections throughout the County.
Vegetation management and creating defensible space is a process and must be maintained over time. Get started today. For more information, please visit the following web sites:
