Emergency Notification Alerts Code Red Dekalb County GA - The other night I received a phone call from a toll free number. It was the Dekalb County's Emergency Notification Alert. Due to the heavy rains and flooding Governor Sonny Perdue declared a state of emergency for 17 Georgia Counties.


DeKalb County, GA citizens now have the ability to receive personal emergency notifications via the CodeRED system. Click on the CodeRED link below to register for the emergency notifications.

Code Red


The automated call told me that Dekalb was giving a voluntary evacuation notice. They stated where the emergency shelters were set up, they mentioned the Red Cross, the Salvation Army and other important information for people that needed it.


The alerts will also be used for bio-terrorism alerts and boil water advisories. See more information from Dekalb County's website regarding road closures and other information.


This rain and flooding is highly unusual for metro Atlanta. It was the worst "storm" in 90 years.  We are starting to dry out and look forward to sunny days.
