will I receive from CodeRED Weather Warning?
will deliver a pre-recorded alert message directly to your
resident’s phones in the projected path of the severe weather. The
system automatically sends these notifications without any effort
from your staff 24 hours a day, 365 days a year providing your
residents the needed time to prepare. This becomes even more
critical if a tornado comes through your area during the night, when
television, radio broadcasts and sirens are ineffective.
How Does CodeRED
Weather Warning Work?
uses new polygon warning methodologies based on “Storm Based
Warnings” direct from the NWS and contacts only those in the
affected areas, eliminating many false alarms associated with prior
notification methods. CodeRED Weather Warning monitors each NWS
bulletin to determine the severity of the warning and the exact
area(s) affected coupled with the predicted heading of the
threatening storm. CodeRED Weather Warning then creates a calling
database of all subscribers within the projected area of the severe
weather. This calling database is then immediately submitted to the
CodeRED Weather Warning automated calling system. By eliminating the
need for human intervention to active warnings we have significantly
decreased the response time for fast moving storms.
