ARE YOU IN THE DATABASE? CodeRED is a geographical based system where street addresses are needed to select the telephone numbers that will receive emergency notification calls. Public databases have been used to collect telephone numbers for existing Grayson County home and businesses and have been placed into the CodeRED database. However, sometimes the public databases contain outdated information, thus no one should automatically assume his or her telephone number is included. All individuals and businesses should register, especially if you have an unlisted phone number, have changed your phone number or address within the last year, or you use a cellular phone as your home phone.
For those who are hearing impaired the Internet update offers a TDD ONLY option for tone delivery of emergency messages. Messages delivered to phone numbers marked TDD will only be delivered in a TDD/TTY format. Residents without Internet access may visit any of the public libraries within the county to use a computer or call the Grayson County Office of Emergency Management at 903.813.4231 to give their information over the phone.
THIS SYSTEM WILL ONLY BE USED FOR EMERGENCY PURPOSES UNLESS YOU OPT-IN FOR NON-EMERGENCY NOTIFICATIONS. Examples of times when the CodeRED system could be utilized: severe weather notifications, drinking water contamination, evacuation notice & route, missing person, fires requiring your action or floods, bomb threat, hostage situation, chemical spill or gas leak, and other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for life safety.
IF YOU WANT NON-EMERGENCY NOTICES FROM THE CITY OR COUNTY - such as information about water, solid waste or other service interruptions, please make sure you enroll in the "General Notifications" option.
