SECONDS COUNT IN AN EMERGENCY!
Grafton County has instituted the CodeRed Emergency Notification System - an
ultra high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications.
This system allows us to telephone targeted areas of Grafton County in case of
an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as a missing child
or evacuation notices). The system is capable of dialing thousands of phone
numbers per hour. It then delivers our recorded message to a live person or an
answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.
A YouTube Video explaining Grafton County Sheriff’s Office CodeRed system
can be viewed here-feel free to share it.
It is important that all residents and business within the County subscribe to the
system to ensure proper notification can be made during an emergency.
Subscription is quick and easy, and your information will remain confidential
within our system and not be used for any other purpose.
