Citizens Emergency Alert System

The Martinsville-Henry County 911 Center has recently implemented the CodeRED system, a high-speed emergency notification service provided by Ormond Beach, Florida-based Emergency Communications Network. 

The CodeRED system will serve as the backbone of Martinsville-Henry County's emergency planning and communications outreach to both citizens and Martinsville-Henry County personnel by using the system's capabilities to send telephone calls, text messages, emails, and social media in an effort to effectively inform residents to protect life and property. CodeRED, among other notification systems available, was selected for its unrivaled reliability and accuracy, as well as the system's global use. 

Learn how the CodeRED Emergency Notification system works by watching an overview video.

Martinsville-Henry County has been provided with an initial database of residential and business telephone numbers, however, all residents living within Martinsville-Henry County limits are encouraged to enroll in additional contact information including cell phone numbers, text, and email addresses. No one should automatically assume they are in the emergency contact database.

Public Safety officials across the United States have credited CodeRED notifications for many successful events including the location of missing children, apprehending wanted criminals, issuing timely weather alerts, and evacuation notifications!
