Code Red

The City of Quitman, Texas is provided emergency notification services through Wood County by a grant from the East Texas Council of Governments.  This is under contract with Emergency Communications Network, Inc., of Ormond Beach, Florida, for its "CodeRED" high-speed telephone emergency notification services. The CodeRED system gives government officials the ability to deliver pre-recorded emergency telephone notification/information messages to targeted areas at a rate of up to 1,000 calls per minute.   The system can be used in a variety of emergency and operational situations to keep the community safe and informed. 

Such systems are only as good as the telephone database supporting them.  If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called. The CodeRED system not only offers faster calling rates and improved message delivery, it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly to the system's telephone database.
