Alert Clay County to replace CodeRED emergency notification system
Upgraded system will cost less and be more efficient
CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – The current CodeRED emergency alert and notification system in Clay County has been replaced with a new high speed system, according to a release from Clay County Emergency Management. You may have received a notification today if you are currently registered with Code Red alerting you to register for the new system. Volunteers and staff manned the phones to answer questions and aid residents in the process of converting to the new system.
Alert Clay County will provide county and municipal residents, along with business owners the ability to receive emergency notifications and warnings and threatening severe weather alerts on their home phones, business phones, cellphones, and via email address.
The new system went online last month and will overlap with the CodeRED system until June 30, and is expected to provide better functionality at a lower cost, officials said.
Clay County residents and businesses can receive such notifications by registering their addresses and contact information at the Alert Clay County portal at ALERT.claycountygov.com. To ensure that the system will call you when your address or business is threatened by an emergency or severe weather event, simply register your contact information into the ALERT Clay County portal at ALERT.claycountygov.com. (Do not use WWW.)
It is important to note that any information entered into the former CodeRED service will not carry-over to the new system. All residents and businesses who were registered under CodeRED must register into the new system in order to continue receiving emergency notifications put out by the county. As with the county’s former system, personal data entered into ALERT Clay County is protected. On June 30th Code Red users will no longer receive the emergency / weather alerting calls and text.
