You May Want to Sign up for the Summit County Sheriff’s Code Red System

How do you get notified of important information regarding our community? Some people use Twitter or Facebook. Others may happen to catch information on KPCW. Can I suggest perhaps an additional way, especially for life threatening emergencies?

This morning I received a call from the Summit County Sheriff’s automated Code Red system. It warned me that a bear was sighted by Sheriff’s deputies in my neighborhood. While this bear was only attacking trash cans, it could have been dangerous for my dogs. Yet, I can think of many other scenarios where information from law enforcement could mean the difference between life and death. Imagine a forest fire headed toward your house or what to do in the aftermath of an earthquake. It just makes sense to have a channel of communications ready to go between citizens and those people who have the information to help us.

I’ve been signed up on the service for quite a while and this is the first call I’ve received, so it’s not like it will spam you.

To sign up, you go here:

Code Red

It costs nothing and could be a decision that saves your family’s life some day.
