Summit County alert system switching to a new platform
September 14, 2016
Summit County is upgrading its SC Alert emergency notification system by switching to a new platform that officials say is more sophisticated than the current software. Between Sept. 15 and 30, SC Alert will migrate to the CodeRED platform, and during this time alerts will be sent via both the existing and the new system. By Oct. 1, all messaging will go through the new platform.
The county is urging current users to create accounts in CodeRED. Invitation emails will start going out the week of Sept. 19, and reminder emails will be sent to users in the current system.
CodeRED allows users to receive notifications via a free, location-based mobile app, meaning that if they are travelling in other counties that use the system, they will receive alerts there, too.
"We understand that this transition involves a little work on the part of our current 49204 SC Alert users, but we're confident that CodeRED is a far better tool through which we can deliver critical information to our community," Undersheriff Joel Cochran said.
