McKinney MUDs 1 & 2 Contract with CodeRED to Provide Emergency Notification Services to Community
Following the extensive and thorough evaluation and review of mass emergency alerting systems, McKinney MUD Nos. 1 and 2 (the “Districts”) have implemented the CodeRED system, a high-speed emergency notification service provided by OnSolve, based in Ormond Beach, Florida. Public safety officials across the United States have credited CodeRED notifications for saving lives, including locating missing children, apprehending wanted criminals, and issuing timely evacuations.
The CodeRED system will serve as the backbone of the Districts’ emergency planning and communications outreach. The platform will allow the Districts to communicate with residents and personnel by sending telephone calls, text messages, emails, and mobile app messages to inform residents of emergencies and to better protect life and property. CodeRED was selected for its reliability and accuracy, as well as the system’s widespread usage across North America.
“CodeRED’s robust system will provide District officials with a reliable, easy-to-use technology to enhance emergency preparedness plans,” said Allen Dejonge, Communications Consultant. The Districts anticipate using the system to notify residents of fires, floods, drinking water emergencies, missing children notices, and more.
The Districts have also purchased the CodeRED Weather Warning system, an automated weather warning technology that delivers phone calls, text messages, and emails to registered residents and businesses within the direct path of severe weather. The CodeRED Weather Warning system is an opt-in service that automatically notifies those enrolled of tornado, flash flood, and severe thunderstorm warnings just moments after an alert is issued by the National Weather Service (NWS).
All residents living within McKinney MUD Nos. 1 & 2 are encouraged to visit www.McKinneyMUD1.com and click on the CodeRED logo to enroll using their cell phone number, text and email address. No one is automatically included in the emergency contact database. Each resident must register to be included.
