Montgomery County Adopts Code Red Weather Alert System
Monday, 07 October 2013

October 7--  If severe weather is heading for Montgomery County and you live there, you can be warned directly by the Code Red Emergency Notification System.

It's a free service, but you have to sign up, according to Montgomery County Emergency Management Director Andrew Leanza.

"We dont' have any weather warning sirens in this county.  We're actually the 131st county in Georgia to sign up.  You will receive notification if the national weather service issues a weather alert for your area.

Montgomery County will use the Code Red System Friday to contact as many residents as possible whose names and phone numbers are available.  However, if you're not contacted, you can get in the data base yourself.

"Go to www.montgomerycountyga.gov and look for the Code Red link.  It takes you to a website where you can sign up for the kind of warnings you would like to receive (tornado, severe thunderstorn , flood warning, etc).  It asks you for your name, address and phone numbers, email and it will contact you in case of severe weather," Leandra says.
