CodeRED Emergency Notification System

The system has the capability to send emergency information to registered users via telephone calls, text messages, emails, and social media posts.

IPAWS is another notification system that is region-specific. Dispatch has the capability to select an area on a map and send out emergency notifications. If you sign up for the CodeRED system, you will automatically receive IPAWS notifications as well.

You can also download the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) app for severe weather notifications. This is currently one of the best notification systems for severe weather currently available.
