Emergency Notification

 

To help grow our database with the most reliable information, we are strongly encouraging everyone to register on our Code Red Community Notification Enrollment Page (CNE).  The secure, customized CNE page allows our residents and businesses to add or update their contact information to ensure they will be included when an emergency, general, or weather message is sent – unlisted numbers, mobile numbers, TD/TTY requirements can all be entered.  Below are some advantages of the Weather Notification service provided by Code Red:

  • Stay Safe: Code Red Weather Warning will alert registered citizens, in the direct path of severe weather

  • Alert Types: Notifications will be sent out moments after a severe thunderstorm warning, tornado warning, or flash flood warning has been issued by the National Weather Services.  Only citizens in the immediate impact area will be alerted

  • Caller ID:  Registered citizens will know the call is from Code Red Weather Warning when you see the telephone number 1-800-566-9780.  If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone simply dial the number back.

  • Privacy: Your contact information will remain private and will only be used for severe weather or emergency alerts.

  • Register to get the Call:  Users must opt-in to receive weather notifications. 

With everyone taking a moment to fill out the CNE, we can ensure the citizens of Spartanburg County receive timely notifications via multiple platforms (email, cell, landline, text).  If you wish to receive these notifications, please click on the logo above:

Severe Weather Awareness Week

Governor Nikki Haley has proclaimed that South Carolina Severe Weather Awareness Week for 2014 will be observed March 2 – 8.  The South Carolina Emergency Management Division, the National Weather Service, and the South Carolina Broadcasters Association jointly sponsor the week to remind people that severe storms, tornadoes and flash floods are significant hazards in South Carolina and people need to take proper safety precautions.  SCEMD and the National Weather Service are promoting awareness of procedures that help keep you safe during tornadoes. 

A highlight of the week will be the annual statewide tornado drill on Tuesday, March 4, at 9 a.m. with a backup date of Thursday, March 6.  The State Superintendent of Education is encouraging schools statewide to participate in the drill.  South Carolina has received a waiver from the Federal Communications Commission to use the Tornado Warning product on NOAA tone-alert weather radio when the drill is conducted.  During the drill, the National Weather Service will use a real-event code, TOR.  The "TOR" code will activate tone-alert weather radios that are set to receive tornado warnings, and those radios will broadcast the exercise message.

Public schools, state and local Emergency Management, the South Carolina Broadcasters Association, and others will participate in this annual event.  The purpose of the drill is to test communication systems, safety procedures, mitigation processes, etc.  For further information on Severe Weather Awareness Week, contact your county emergency management director, the State Emergency Management Division or your nearest National Weather Service office.
