EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM

CodeRed
Seconds Count In An Emergency

Laurens County has instituted the CodeRED Emergency Notification System - an ultra high-speed telephone communication

 service for emergency notifications. This system allows us to telephone all or targeted areas of the County in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as tornados, severe thunderstorms, missing child or evacuation notices).

The system is capable of dialing 50,000 phone numbers per hour. It then delivers our recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.

THIS SYSTEM WILL ONLY BE USED FOR EMERGENCY PURPOSES.

Examples of times when the CodeRED system could be utilized:

  • Severe Thunderstorm Warnings
  • Tornado Warnings (not Tornado Watch)
  • Evacuation notice & route
  • Missing persons

and other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for life safety.
