CodeRED Towns County

HIAWASSEE, Ga. – Towns County is offering citizens, who may not be computer-savvy, an opportunity to sign up for emergency alerts through the CodeRED program.

“There’s a lot of folks in the county that are not signed up on this, so we are going to have two sign up dates at the commissioner’s office for folks who need help signing up,” Towns County Commissioner Cliff Bradshaw offered.

CodeRED is an emergency alert system designed to notify residents of pertinent information impacting the community. Towns County encourages residents to enroll in the effective communication network.

Crucial notifications can be delivered via phone calls, text messages, emails, and social media.

Critical information, such as weather warnings, emergency preparedness, wildfire advisories, road closures, and missing person alerts, can be distributed on a mass scale to those enrolled in the program.

For those unable to sign up electronically without assistance, the Towns County Commissioner’s Office is offering an option to help.

Residents may visit the Towns County Commissioner’s Office, located downstairs in the Towns County Courthouse, Tuesday, May 1, and Tuesday, May 8, between the hours of 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

“We are asking all the citizens who are interested, and hopefully most of them are, to come out and we’ll do it for you,” Commissioner Bradshaw said.

No appointment is necessary, and sign up is expected to take a mere five minutes per resident.

Notifications can be targeted to specific areas in the event only a portion of the county is affected, such as a water line break within city limits.

Those who are able to enroll online may do so at http://www.townscountyga.org/emergency-alert-system.html
