The Town of Batesburg-Leesville has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeREDhigh-speed emergency notification system. The CodeRED system provides Batesburg-Leesville officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire town in order to inform residents of critical information or time sensitive situations.
“The system will allow us to let folks know about boil water advisories, unexpected closures at Town Hall or changes to Town service schedules, emergency situations that may call for action on the part of residents, or other important, time sensitive information. Residents need to sign up today, so that they don’t miss out on important information,” says Ted Luckadoo, Town Manager.
One of the great features of the CodeRED system is that it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers and email addresses directly into the system's database via the online portal. Individuals and businesses can log onto the Town’s website, www.batesburg-leesville.org, and follow the link to the "CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment" page. Within just a few minutes individuals and business can be registered and ready to receive messages.
Those without Internet access may call Town Hall (532-4601), Monday through Friday, (8AM-5PM)to sign-up over the phone. Needed information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number, additional phone numbers can be entered as well.
All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number.
CodeRED gives those who want to be included an easy and secure method for inputting information. The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes. Questions should be directed to staff at Town Hall, 532-4601.
