Sign Up for CodeRed and Weather Warning

The Claiborne County EMA has contracted with Emergency Communications Network, Inc., of Ormond Beach, Florida, for its "CodeRED" high-speed telephone emergency notification services. The CodeRED system gives city officials the ability to deliver pre-recorded emergency telephone notification/information messages to targeted areas or the entire city. CodeRed and Weather Warn will be available to City residents and businesses.

CODE RED NOTIFICATION
The CodeRed number on your Caller ID will be 1-800-566-9780 (Emergency Communications Network). If you see this number it is an emergency message from the  Claiborne County EMA. The 1-800-566-9780 telephone number will only show up if it is a CodeRED call from Claiborne County EMA. (see also weather warning caller ID at bottom).

No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included. All businesses in the city should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the last year, and who use a cellular phone as their primary home phone. If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called. 

The information will only be used for emergency notification purposes. Questions should be directed to Claiborne County Emergency Management at 601-437-4684 during the work week, excluding holidays, Monday through Friday 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
