Hanover County Public Safety uses the CodeRED Emergency Notification System - an ultra-high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications and the distribution of information considered to be important.
Code Red Logo
This system allows us to telephone all or targeted areas of the county in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action, such as an evacuation, contaminated water, hazardous chemical spill, etc. This system is capable of dialing the entire county within minutes. It then delivers a message describing the situations to a live person or an answering machine in the affected area, possibly including instructions requiring immediate action on the part of the recipient.
