Morgan County Emergency Services has recently upgraded and improved two new services, CodeRED and Nixle, to allow emergency alerts to be relayed to the citizens of Morgan County immediately in the event of a local emergency.
CodeRED is a “community notification system” used to send out alerts such as evacuation alerts, wildfires, severe weather, missing person alerts, or any other emergency message. It is an easy to use system that is vital when undergoing critical emergencies.
The system can support thousands of users and sends those users alerts via the telephone or internet. Alerts can be sent to residents via a phone message, a text message or email. The alerts sent out are specific for Morgan County. The alerts are vital in the response and the safety of citizens well being and occasionally their lives.
Citizens can sign up through the CodeRED app on their smartphone or sign up online.
