In addition to the emergency, community and missing children alerts which are always free to app users, the app also offers subscribers a free, 30-day trial of CodeRED Weather Warning, which alerts users if they are in the direct path of a severe thunderstorm, tornado or flash flood. Users have the ability to select the types of weather notifications they want and to customize the app based on their unique preferences. “With the added weather component, you don’t have to be worried about missing a tornado siren or watching a weather report. The app will alert you immediately after the National Weather Service issues a severe weather warning, no matter the time of day,” Perry said.
Residents are encouraged to download the app to begin receiving notifications from Fayette County EMA immediately. The app is available for a free download on the App Store and Google Play.
