GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT)- Pitt County is putting new emergency notification system in place.
CodeRED will serve as a communication outreach to both citizens and Pitt County staff through phone calls, texts, e-mails, etc. to inform residents of critical information.
“CodeRED’s robust system will provide Pitt County staff with a reliable, cost-effective, and easy-to-use interface to quickly disseminate critical information to our citizens during emergencies,” said Emergency Management Director Noel Lee. “We are very eager to use this technology to enhance our emergency preparedness plans.”
The county will test the system Tuesday at noon for efficiency.
Pitt County received an initial list of residential and business telephone numbers, however, officials say don’t assume your number is on the list.
