Stay in-the-know when severe weather is on the way or an emergency situation arises by signing up for the City of Suwanee’s CodeRed emergency notification service. The service provides subscribers with emergency and general notifications via phone calls, email, and/or text.

“This is a service that our citizens have requested,” says City Manager Marty Allen, “and we’re pleased to be able to provide it in a manner that we believe is effective and cost efficient. Our Council felt that this was a more elegant, versatile, and effective answer than tornado sirens to residents’ requests in particular for severe weather notification. And, in addition to providing weather-related notifications, the system we’ve adopted can be used for other important emergency and non-emergency communication purposes.”

As residents sign up online, they will indicate preferences for how they wish to be contacted and what kinds of information they wish to receive. Residents also will be given the option of opting out of receiving emergency calls by completing a “do not call” form.

Weather notifications are generated through the National Weather Service and are geocoded so that only subscribers in impacted areas are notified. Emergency notifications are issued sparingly and only in instances when the situation requires awareness or action in order to ensure the safety and well-being of residents.
