LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (KRQE) – Los Alamos County Emergency Management will conduct a CodeRED emergency alert test May 13 at 3 p.m. The test will be sent to all Los Alamos County residents enrolled in the CodeRED system and should be received either by phone call, text message, or email.

The test is in response to an issue after the previous message was sent on May 8. County officials say several residents either didn’t receive the message or only received it by one method despite signing up for multiple methods.
