Richland County Disaster & Emergency Services Implements CodeRED
January 12, 2022 | View PDF
Richland County Disaster and Emergency Services has implemented a new system called CodeRED. This system will be used to notify residents of emergencies, notifying them of a threat or danger and providing them with information on what they should do.
This system will help Richland County instantly notify specific areas of emergencies such as hazardous materials, crime, evacuations, shelter-in-place, wildfires affecting populated areas, and other times of emergencies.
It will be used to supplement Fire, Law, EMS, DES, and other agencies to be able to instantly alert residents of immediate danger.
Residents will receive alerts via mobile SMS, mobile voice message, landline voice message, and/or email. A CodeRED mobile app can also be downloaded.
Through online registration, people can register what phones/email they would like notified and what type of notifications they would like to receive from DES or county emergency agencies.
More information on CodeRed can be accessed on the Richland County website at http://www.richland.org.
