SARASOTA COUNTY – Sarasota County residents are reminded to sign up for CodeRED, a free emergency notification service.
The CodeRED system allows you to receive calls, email alerts or text messages in the event of an emergency that could impact your neighborhood or your business. Alerts include water or sewer interruptions, missing person alerts and major traffic detours, among others.
Sarasota County is also planning to soon add CodeRED’s Weather Warning service, which will automatically notify those registered of tornado, flash flood and severe thunderstorm warnings just minutes after an alert is issued by the National Weather Service. Residents can register for CodeRED now to ensure they will have access to this essential preparedness tool when it becomes active.
CodeRED is available for free by visiting www.scgov.net and clicking the CodeRED registration under Emergency Services at the bottom of the page.
To register, you just need to enter your first and last name, physical address and primary phone numbers.
For more information, call the Sarasota County Contact Center at 941-861-5000 and ask about CodeRED registration.
Sarasota County prohibits discrimination in all services, programs or activities.
