Sun Corridor Transportation Summit

This week I was honored to be a presenter at the Sun Corridor Transportation Summit in Phoenix where we addressed concerns regarding our roadways in Arizona. Transportation is among the top concerns including safety and education for me, I look forward to any opportunity to discuss supporting growth in our infrastructure and maintaining for public safety and reliability our highways in the state.

Get your Flu Shot

Flu shots are now available! Don’t put off getting your flu shot this year.

Benefits: The annual flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get the seasonal flu and spread it to others. The more people are vaccinated against the flu, the less the flu will spread throughout the community.

Who Should get the Flu Vaccine: Everyone should receive an annual flu vaccine. Protecting yourself from the flu also protects the people around you who are more vulnerable to serious flu associated illnesses such as: infants, older adults, and anyone with a chronic condition.

Does the Flu Vaccine Work Right Away? No, it takes about two weeks after receiving the flu vaccination for the antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against the flu. That’s why it’s better to receive your flu vaccination as soon as available or early in the season.

Code RED

CodeRED logoThe Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office now utilizes CodeRED® as its Emergency Notification System. With this service, we can send messages to residents and businesses within minutes with specific information when an emergency or time-sensitive issue arises.

Although ENS does contain published landline phone number information by default, the Sheriff’s Office may only get landline phone data updates twice a year. This is why it is vital that you register all your phone numbers directly to assure contact in an emergency.

contact mode options: Voice, TDD/TTY, SMS, EmailBy signing up or opting-in, you may enter alternate phone numbers and/or modes of contact. You may also specify your primary contact mode. The opt-in process will require that you have a valid email address. A confirmation email and/or text message will be sent upon completion of registration (will be sent from and may take up to 5 minutes). Once registered, you may opt-out at any time.

When delivery of the alert to your primary contact mode fails, the system will automatically fall back to other methods. With respect to phone notifications, if the system detects an answering machine, it will deliver the message to voicemail. If the phone is not answered and no answering machine is detected, the system will redial the number at a later time or, if specified, fall back to another contact mode. When the call appears on your caller-id, it will display the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office business number: (928) 771-3260.


Please, NEVER REPLY to Alert message emails or text messages! Instead, please call (928) 771-3260.
