Elbert County has teamed up with the Elbert County Communication Authority, fire departments and towns to implement CodeRED, an emergency notification system, free to Elbert County residents. The CodeRED system delivers calls, emails and texts for emergency notifications, weather warnings, and other important community updates.
CodeRED uses technology that allows geographic targeting of calls, coupled with a telephone calling system capable of delivering a pre-recorded message directly to homes and businesses at the rate of up to 60,000 calls per hour. The system's main purpose is to notify citizens or groups of citizens in emergency situations, but can deliver non-emergency notifications as well.
CodeRED Weather Warning will deliver severe weather warnings to your telephone and/or cell phone within seconds after being issued by the National Weather Service. You will only get the warning if you physically live in the area that is in the warning!
