Code RED is a web-based system which allows the Sheriff's Office the ability to reach a large number of residents in a very short time, by geographically-based delivery of telephone and text messaging. The system allows county residents the ability to create their own account so they can add or remove numbers they want the system to call. Click here to watch a video on how Code Red works.
The nature of the alert, date, time, a map of the area affected and the option to listen to the message are all features included in the widget. Also included at the bottom of the widget is a “Sign Up” button that links directly to the Community Notification Enrollment page to encourage additional citizen enrollment.
