SECONDS COUNT IN AN EMERGENCY!                                                                          View recent CodeRED messages

Grafton County has instituted the CodeRED Emergency Notification System - an ultra high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows us to telephone targeted areas of the Grafton County Dispatch area in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as a missing child or evacuation notices). The system is capable of dialing thousands of 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.

A document explaining our CodeRED system can be downloaded here-feel free to share it.

It is important that all residents and business within the dispatch area subscribe to the system to ensure proper notification can be made during an emergency.  Subscription is quick and easy, and your information will remain confidential within our system and not be used for any other purpose.



Examples of times when the CodeRED system could be utilized:  Evacuation notice & route, Missing person, Fires or Floods, Bomb threat, Hostage situation, Chemical spill or Gas leak, and other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for life safety.
