Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp is urging local citizens to register with CodeRed to receive future weather warnings, in lieu of recent severe weather that hit the region.
The City of Hopkinsville has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution to allow Hopkinsville officials a way to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire city.
Mayor Kemp says he highly recommends CodeRED to residents who want to be informed about possible severe weather or any other information concerning the city.
Mayor Kemp then went onto say that the CodeRed system was a life saver and that area residents should take advantage of the community notification system.
According to Mayor Kemp, the system requires street addresses to ensure emergency notification calls are sent to the proper individuals and the system also works for cell phones too.
