Dougherty CodeRED sign ups surge after storm

More than one hundred people have signed up for Dougherty County's emergency notification system since the storms hit.

The Code RED High Speed Notification system calls people during a dangerous situation such as Tuesday's storms.

If you're registered, you'll get a call that delivers an automated message of warning or information.

This week's severe weather that hit in the middle of the night convinced a lot of people to sign up.

Dougherty EMA Deputy Director Jim Vaught said "Anytime we have severe weather, the very next day I go into the codeRED system, and there will always be a number of people who are trying to sign up for the program. It keys them. I meant to do that, now I'm really going to go ahead and do it. "

Dougherty County emergency officials urge you to sign up.  You can register here.
