Alachua County Emergency Management uses the CodeRED Emergency Notification System which is an ultra-high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications and the distribution of information considered to be important.
This system allows us to telephone all or targeted areas of the County in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action, such as an evacuation, contaminated water, hazardous chemical spill, etc. This system is capable of dialing the entire County within minutes. It then delivers a pre-recorded message describing the situations to a live person or an answering machine in the affected area, possibly including instructions requiring immediate action on the part of the recipient. Additionally, the County utilizes CodeRED's Weather Warning service. This allows CodeRED to call you when there is a tornado, thunderstorm or flood warning for your area.
While a calling data base was created by extracting information from the County's computerized files and other public record sources, it is certain that not all phone numbers of residents and residential and business property owners within our incorporated limits were captured.
