Valdosta - They're better prepared for emergencies now in Lowndes County.

The Code Red program launched Friday.

That means if there is a disaster, everyone in Lowndes County will get an automated phone call telling them about it. And if it doesn't affect the entire county, targeted areas can be notified.

"You can target certain areas of the county. We can notify a trailer park of a tornado warning and its already been proven to save lives in the California Wildfires and we hope we don't have to use it for that, but it's here in case we do," says Commission Chairman Rod Casey.

All listed phone numbers in the county are now in the database.

If you have an unlisted number or want your cell number used, visit their website to enter your contact information.
