Fulton County Launches CodeRED Emergency Notification System

Fulton County --  Fulton County Government announced today that they have contracted with Emergency Communications Network (ECN) to license its CodeRED high-speed notification system that will provide Fulton County Emergency Management officials the ability to quickly deliver time-sensitive messages via voice, email, and text to Fulton citizens who register to participate in the program during emergency or disasters situations. 

"CodeRED is an important tool for emergency communications," said Angela Barrett, Director of Emergency Communications. "It will help us disseminate critical information to citizens in emergency situations such as severe weather, drinking water contamination alerts, hazardous chemical spills, security alerts, missing persons or evacuations.”

To sign up for CodeRED, individuals and businesses should log onto Fulton County’s website at www.fultoncountyga.gov and click the CodeRED link on the right side of the webpage.  Required information includes; first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number.  Additional phone numbers can be entered as well. 

Businesses are encouraged to register for CodeRED, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number.

Those citizens without internet access may call Fulton County Emergency Communications at 404-730-7900, Monday through Friday, (8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) to get registration assistance for CodeRED.

“The CodeRED system gives individuals and businesses access to a valuable safety and prevention network by linking critical messages to their personal information. I am encouraging citizens to register immediately and take full advantage of this system,” said Zachary Williams Fulton County Manager.
