The CODERED alert system is now
active in Bristol, Tennessee. This system can be used for all types of emergency notifications to include suspicious
activity in your area, an urgent be on the lookout message, a hazardous materials/air quality warning, water outage
or contamination, a missing endangered child or adult, and urgent weather.
Previously we used a system called Deltalert. The Deltalert
- Emergency Notification System was recently purchased by Code Red. We have changed our reverse emergency notification
system to the Code Red effective April 19, 2013.
The Code Red system is now being utilized to send warning notifications for residents and businesses
in Bristol, Tennessee.
relates to severe weather, the Code Red system, in conjunction with the Outdoor Warning System, shall be activated for any
tornado warning issued from the National Weather Service that includes Bristol Tennessee, or when there is a confirmed
sighting in Sullivan County, which may affect the Bristol Tennessee area. The system will not be activated solely based on severe storm warnings or unverifiable information.

your telephone numbers, including your cell numbers, with this system to receive emergency and/or general messages.

it is a duplicate and will retain the most current registration only.
