CodeRed is an emergency notification system, the system is designed for any situation where we need to notify the public of either a manmade or natural event where we need to provide the public with information or instructions.
Some examples of when CodeRED would be used:
- Evacuation Notices
- Gas Leaks
- Chemical Spills
If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called. The CodeRED system is a geographical based notification system, which means street addresses are needed to select which phone numbers will receive emergency notification calls in any given situation. The system works fine for cell phones too, but we have to have a street address.
Those without Internet access may call (540)727-7900, Monday through Friday, (8AM-4PM) to give their information over the phone.
