The Mission Of Higgins Fire District Is To Provide The Highest Level Of Service To Our Community By Valuing Our Members, Promoting Positive Leadership, And Dedicating Ourselves To Excellence.

Emergency Notification Sources


Public safety officials can now more effectively communicate time-sensitive messages using the CodeRED system. This access will allow calls to be delivered seconds after public safety officials launch a message. Additionally, the county will have the ability to target notifications geographically, only notifying those community members impacted by an alert.

All residents of Nevada County are encouraged to update their existing information and enroll their additional contact information AND MOBILE PHONE NUMBERS by following this link to the Nevada County OES Web page:


For residents and businesses who are using AT&T as their landline phone provider, their home phone number is already added as the part of a public safety data base available to public safety agencies. However, residents can opt out of this service, if desired.

Additionally, residents can request contact through email and SMS text messages (on their mobile phones).

Contact information accessed thru CodeRED will only be used by public safety officials for emergency notification.
