TODD COUNTY, MN May 23, 2016 – Following an extensive and thorough evaluation and review of alerting systems, the Todd 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 Todd County emergency planning and communications outreach to both citizens and Todd County personnel by using the system capabilities to send telephone calls, text messages, emails and social media 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. Learn how the CodeRED Emergency Notification system works.    

 

Todd County officials have an easy-to-use interface to quickly disseminate critical information to our citizens during emergencies. We are very eager to use this technology to enhance our emergency preparedness plans. The County anticipates using the system to notify residents in specific geographic locations of fires, floods, drinking water emergencies and missing children or vulnerable adult notices.

 

The County has been provided an initial database of residential and business telephone numbers, however all residents living within Todd County limits are encouraged to visit www.co.todd.mn.us and click on the CodeRED logo to enroll additional contact information including cell phone numbers, text and email addresses. No one should automatically assume they are in the emergency contact database.

 

Public safety officials across the United States have credited CodeRED notifications for many successful events including locating missing children, apprehending wanted criminals and issuing timely evacuations.  Learn about how CodeRED has help communities across the country stay safe and informed.
