Wright County adopts new emergency notification system

WRIGHT COUNTY, MN – Wright County has a new rapid emergency notification service called CodeRED® . The new system will distribute emergency messages via telephone to targeted areas or the entire county at a rate of 1,000 calls per minute. CodeRED® employs a one-of-a-kind Internet mapping capability for geographic targeting of calls, coupled with a high speed telephone calling system capable of delivering customized emergency messages directly to homes and businesses . This service can be used in case of fires, flooding, train derailment, chemical spills, nuclear incidents, evacuation, downed power lines, lost individuals, natural disasters, abductions, water system problems, bomb threats, disease outbreaks, or other emergencies. Calls can be geographically targeted for local incidents . If widespread, the entire county with 31,000 households can be called within 30 minutes. Wright County residents are welcome and encouraged to enter their contact information for home, business, and mobile phones so they may be contacted by the system in the event of an emergency. Most landlines are automatically part of the system but mobile phones are not. It is important for county residents and business customers to register, especially if they use unlisted numbers, cell phones, or V o IP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) . Those who do not register their address and phone number may not be notified with CodeRED® in case of an emergency. Registration is confidential, free, and easy. To register, go to the Wright County website at www.co.wright.mn.us and click on the CodeRED® Emergency Notification link on the lower left side of the page.
