Did you get a call or an email from Sheriff Chris Blair this week? If you didn’t we wanted to help spread the word.
Most people hear “CodeRed” and think of movies. Right here in Marion County we have a CodeRED Emergency Notification System. When you sign up for it, the system sends you alerts during emergencies, tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, flash floods, and additional general notifications if you’d like them. You can get the alerts on your email or phone(call or text).
2-1-1 is a great way to learn about disaster preparedness and emergency resources, so give us a call, text us(send your zip code to 898-211) or hey, you’re online now – you can even chat with us live. Call us to learn about programs like signing up for the special needs registry, weatherization programs to help fix a hole in your roof, or how to protect your house from wildfires. Forgot the non-emergency number for the Sheriff or your local police? We have that too, simply dial 2-1-1 for free 24 hours a day!
