New Service Allows Residents to Sign Up for Emergency Notifications
Fond du Lac County Emergency Management would like to announce the implementation of the CodeRED Community Emergency Notification System in Fond du Lac County. This system allows for the rapid delivery of emergency information to a targeted area or to an entire community through phone, email and/or text messaging.
There is no charge for this service and the information provided will never be sold or shared outside of the CodeRED network. Bobbi Hicken, Director of Communications and Emergency Management for Fond du Lac County, would like to see everyone in the county sign up to receive notifications through CodeRED. “Your contact information needs to be in the database in order to receive notifications and ensure you are informed of emergency situations,” says Hicken.
CodeRED has provided the county with a general database, however, citizens are encouraged to simply log onto the Fond du Lac County’s website.
Some of the notifications that may be received would be for evacuation notices and directions, chemical spills, gas leaks or other emergency situations where rapid and accurate information is essential for life safety.
