Code Red

McLeod County has implemented the CodeRED system, a high-speed emergency notification service provided by Ormond Beach, FL-based Emergency Communications Network.

The CodeRED system will serve as the backbone of the county's emergency planning and communications outreach to both citizens and response personnel by using the system capabilities to send telephone calls, text messages, emails and social media messaging in an effort to effectively inform residents to protect life and property. CodeRED, among other notification systems available, was selected for its unrivaled reliability and accuracy, as well as the system's global use.

CodeRED's robust system will provide McLeod County officials with a reliable, easy-to-use interface to quickly disseminate critical information to our citizens during emergencies. The county anticipates using the system to notify residents in specific geographic locations of hazardous material incidents, floods, drinking water emergencies, missing children notices and other incidents that threatens our communities.
