Harrison County and the City of Cynthiana have 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 City and 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 50,000 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.
Examples of notifications that the CodeRED system could be used for include:
- Amber Alerts
- Boil Water Advisories
- Evacuation Notices
- HAZ-MAT Incidents
- Hostage Situations
- Missing Persons / Searches
- Terrorist Threats
- Tornado Warnings
