Is CodeRED the only means of notification?
No! No Emergency Notification System is 100% reliable. People do not always hear TV and radio messages, especially at night. Sirens have a limited range and give little information. Door-to-door or mobile loudspeaker notifications are time-consuming and inefficient. CodeRED cannot reach everyone and is only a part of the notification process. It gives emergency managers another tool to alert the public. Residents are still encouraged to listen to warnings issued through the TV and radio media and NOAA weather radios.
