The CodeRED coverage for Cherokee County is being upgraded and expanded.
During the Monday meeting of the Cherokee County Commission, new EMA Director Shawn Rogers presented the commission with a proposal that would provide additional coverage – adding new features while effectively doubling the reach.
That proposal was unanimously approved by the commission. Cherokee County residents will be able to receive CodeRED messages, PLUS local messages and alerts issued by Cherokee County EMA. CodeRED is a FREE service.
