Every second counts in an emergency!
Platte County has instituted the CodeRED Emergency Notification System - an ultra high-speed
telephone communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows us to telephone all or
targeted areas of the County in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as a
boil-water notice, missing child or evacuation notices). The system is capable of dialing 60,000 phone
numbers per hour. It then delivers our recorded message to a live person or an answering machine,
making three attempts to connect to any number.

- Bomb threat
- Hostage situation
- Chemical spill or Gas leak
- other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for life safety.
