The Pottawattamie County Emergency Management Agency has recently implemented Emergency Communications Network’s CodeRED system, a high-speed notification solution and the CodeRED Weather Warning service. This no-charge service is available to businesses and residents of rural Pottawattamie County and the rural communities in the county. CodeRed will allow public officials to warn citizens of pending emergencies, critical public information during disasters, recommended protective actions to take and provide notification of severe weather warnings. The system can also be used to provide other important information to communities.
The CodeRED Emergency Notification System
is an ultra high-speed telephone communication service designed to deliver emergency messages and distribute information considered to be important in all or specific areas of the city or county.
This system allows us to telephone targeted areas of the City or County or the entire City or County within minutes. It then delivers a pre-recorded message describing the situations to a live person or an answering machine in the affected area, and if necessary, including instructions requiring immediate action on the part of the recipient.
