RE:    Introducing the CodeRed Emergency Alert System Mobile App – No Longer Just for the iPhone

Mono County utilizes what is known as the CodeRed Emergency Alert System when a critical incident or emergency situation takes place within the county. This system is a database of resident and citizen information for use only in critical and emergency situations. When residents and citizens enter their information into the CodeRed Emergency Alert System, they are added to a nationwide database set exclusively for emergency community alerts in emergency situations. To register for the CodeRed emergency alerts, log on to www.monosheriff.org and click on the CodeRed Community Notification System link.

The CodeRed system has also joined the technology bandwagon by introducing the release of the new CodeRed Mobile Alert Public Safety app for smart phones. This app will not only benefit the residents of Mono County but also the travelers and visitors to the area. Smart phones with the new app will be alerted with a push notification along with the voice file of the alert for up to 24 hours after the alert has been issued. This is a free app and is currently available in the Google Play marketplace for Android users as well as in the iTunes store for iPhone users. Download your free app today!

    I guess I’d finally have to get a cell phone to use this.
    Nah, never mind I ain’t going to do it.
    I barely know what an app is.

    I don’t know….maybe it’s just me,but if there were to be a major emergency or catastrophe, about the last thing I would do is wait around or take much advise or follow much on what this alert system would have to say…reminds me too much of the old “cold war” day movies or warnings, when it showed the Country being bombed,cities in ruins….or natural disasters too,a volcano exploding,a major flood or earthquake with devestating effects….and families all sitting around a radio,listening what others tell you what you should or shouldn’t be doing to survive.The last thing I would do ,if something major would to happen,and had to think of survival, is run for the nearest i-phone,or i-pad or what-ever they call them things.
