Public Safety

The City of Waseca strives to provide our residents with a sense of well-being by ensuring a high level of public safety through the provision of police and fire protection and emergency preparedness services.  Our goal is to deliver high-quality public safety services by providing well-trained and equipped Police, Fire and Building Inspection personnel.



Waseca County Sheriff’s Office has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed emergency notification system. This system has the ability to deliver messages to a live person or an answering machine within a targeted area or the entire county quickly.

Waseca County residents have the option of receiving severe weather warnings by phone through the CodeRED Weather Warning alert system option.  The option will call residents to warn them of tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, and flash flooding. Residents may specify which types of alerts they would like to receive.

Residents can sign up for Code Red by going to the county’s website
