GRADY COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Grady County is changing its CodeRED system, and people need to sign up now.

The new system is connected with the national weather service, and emergency managers say it's faster and safer for the community.

The new automated system will replace the current manually initiated system.

The current system sent weather warnings out to the whole county, which sometimes took as long as 20 minutes to reach everyone.

And even if you currently get weather alerts, you still need to sign up again for the new system. Don't assume it has your number.

"In this system, you have to voluntarily fill out the information because it will not contact you unless you have your number in the database," said Jim Ellis, county EMA Director.

Warning notifications will be delivered for severe thunderstorms, tornado, and flash flood warnings.

You can call the Grady county EMA at 229-378-2278 to sign up.
