Knox County promoting severe weather alert system

Posted: Updated:
KNOX CO., IN (WFIE) -

Knox county residents and business owners should be getting a call today letting them know about a new automated weather warning system that will alert them of dangerous weather conditions.

The Knox County Emergency Management Agency will use their emergency notification system to call all residents starting at 3 p.m. EDT this afternoon to promote the CodeRED severe weather warning system. 

The message will direct residents and business owners to the Knox County E.M.A. website to sign-up for the free service and select the types of warnings they want to receive. 

Those without internet access can go to the Vincennes or Bicknell libraries to enroll.  

You must sign-up to participate in the code-red program at www.knoxcounty.in.gov/departments/public-safety/emergency-management.   Follow the CodeRED link On the bottom of the home page.

This service is only for Knox County residents, however 14 News offers a similar service called Thundercall.  You can sign-up for our free service here.
