LENAWEE COUNTY, MI (Toledo News Now) -
A push to get Lenawee County residents enrolled
in a Code Red program is paying off. They've had the largest number of new
registrations in the whole country.
"This gives us the tools, and the capability, of
pushing information out very, very rapidly to [residents]," said Curtis Parson,
of Lenawee County Emergency Management.
When a tornado, flood, chemical spill, or other
dangerous event happens, people want the information right away. The Code Red
program figures out which part of the county will be impacted by a disaster and
calls or sends a message to those people.
"I think it's a great idea," said Jerry
Uyttenhove, who works in the county. "It alerts people to any impending danger
in the area."
More than 9,000 people and 300 businesses have
signed up for Code Red in the county.
"I want to make this available and I want to get
people registered so when something happens in their community, they know about
it immediately," Parson said.
