Residents who opt in to the Code Red Emergency System can be warned of any type of situation, including a water main break, a Hazmat situation and missing children. Local officials activate the system.
The severe weather notification system is directly connected to the National Weather Service’s satellite technology to ensure the automated system stays up-to-date with the latest weather developments.
Code Red features a massive infrastructure that can transmit millions of messages within the hour.
Private citizens and businesses can go to the county’s website at www.pcgovt.com and follow the Code Red link on the lower left-hand side of the homepage to add their numbers.
Those who don’t have Internet access are asked to call the Pulaski County 911 Center and supply their information over the phone. The service is free to residents.
