CodeRED Notification System

 

CodeRed Notification Sign-up  is available for residents of Greenwood County residents. Click on underlined link to register.

CodeRED® is a new service by which government officials’ county-wide can notify residents by telephone about emergency situations or general information. The system is capable of sending messages only to people affected by a particular situation, such as an evacuation and missing child, or to the County’s entire population.
Additionally, officials can send message to response personnel to activate them or keep them up-to-date on the situation using phone, text or e-mails.

The CodeRed system also has a weather warning system. This program allows residents to opt-in and receive notification of severe thunderstorm, tornado, flood, or winter storm warnings. The system will only contact those individuals in the affected area as determined by the national weather service. Residents must sign up for the alerts to be reached by phone, text and e-mail at their home of record.
