Code Red emergency notification system:
Please take a moment to fill in the appropriate information on the CodeRED® emergency notification system page to be notified by your local emergency response team in the event of emergency situations or critical community alerts. Examples include: evacuation notices, bio-terrorism alerts, boil water notices, and missing child reports.
Anderson County has added another tool to its emergency notification system arsenal with the CodeRED® Weather Warning service. The system identifies persons who have signed up for the service who are in the path of a tornado, severe thunderstorm, or flooding. The system uses National Weather Service alerts received electronically, selects the appropriate subscribers, and delivers the warnings.
To receive these warnings, you need to click on the above link, fill in your contact information, and check the box in the WeatherWarning section of the page. These warnings will come to your home telephone and/or your cellular telephone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
CodeRED® database has all local numbers except cellular telephones. These can be added by clicking on the above link and filling in the information.
Please contact the Anderson County Emergency Management office at 785-448-6797 with any questions.
