EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
Seconds Count In An
Laurens County has instituted the CodeRED
Emergency Notification System - an ultra high-speed telephone
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
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.
HERE TO GET STARTED
THIS SYSTEM WILL ONLY BE USED FOR EMERGENCY
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.
