Code Red

CodeRED - Seconds Count in an Emergency

Warren County has instituted the CodeRED Emergency Notification System - an ultra high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows us to telephone all or targeted areas of the County in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as a boil-water notice, missing child or evacuation notices). The system is capable of dialing 60,000 phone numbers per hour. It then delivers our recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.

This system will only be used for emergency purposes.


Examples of times when the CodeRED system could be utilized: 

  • Drinking water contamination
  • Bomb threat
  • Chemical spill or Gas leak
  • Evacuation notice and route
  • Fires or Floods
  • Hostage situation
  • Missing person
  • Other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for life safety
  • Utility outage
