Emergency Notification & Alerting Resources - Are you Connected?

Ready NC App:

The ReadyNC mobile app is an all-in-one tool to help people get ready for everything from traffic jams to hurricanes and ice storms. The app gives information on real-time traffic and weather conditions, river levels, evacuations and power outages.


CodeRED Mobile Alert & CodeRED:

The app works similarly to our current CodeRED system. If you have the app downloaded and are in the affected area of the alert, a notification will be sent through the app to alert you of the news related to the issue. 

To get the Code Red Mobile Alert, download it on the App Store or Google Play. The app allows residents and visitors to receive free emergency, missing person and community alerts via push notifications to your mobile  devices.
