MORE INFORMATION ABOUT RAVE IS COMING SOON


PLEASE READ AND REGISTER FOR NOTIFICATION AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

Wood County, Texas and its incorporated cities have entered into an agreement with Emergency Communications Network, Inc (ECN) for the use of its CodeRED Emergency Notification system.  This system utilizes land-line phones, cellular phones, e-mail, and TXT messages to deliver notifications about emergency or non-emergency situations as quickly as possible to the citizens of Wood County or the incorporated cities therein.

Tully Davidson, Emergency Management Coordinator of Wood County reminds everyone to not assume you are automatically registered with the system.  The system relies on your physical address to know when to call you if Wood County activates the system.  You can register your home phone, cell phone, and e-mail address and if the system is activated you will be notified if your address is within the area select by Emergency Management personnel.

Wood County ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT allow any unauthorized access to your contact information and it is not sold, shared, or distributed to any other party other than Wood County, or the incorporated cities in Wood County for the purpose of emergency or non-emergency communications as deemed appropriate.  Your information will never be used for any purpose other than to communicate with you directly from Wood County or the city in which you live.

This service is ONLY available to residents whose addresses are inside the limits of Wood County including the cities of Yantis, Winnsboro, Mineola, Quitman, Hawkins, and Alba, as well as the unincorporated areas of Wood County.  If your address is not in Wood County, you will not be added to the Wood County call database.

If you receive a call via the CodeRED notification system it will clearly state that it is either an emergency or non-emergency CodeRED call.  Some sample calls are below so you can hear the announcement of the call when you answer your phone.

Wood County, incorporated cities therein, along with Emergency Communications Network, Inc. (ECN) do not guarantee delivery of all calls to all citizens registered due to circumstances beyond our control.  Telephone network outages, overloading of the telephone network, or telephone lines that are in-use at the time of the call attempt will not receive a call, even if they are registered in the system.  Wood County, incorporated cities therein, along with Emergency Communications Network, Inc. (ECN) assume no responsibility or liability for damage to life or property in the event that a call can not be successfully delivered to you.  All citizens should remain alert during severe weather and never wait for a call before seeking shelter or taking protective measures.

When registering for CodeRed you must provide all the requested information including first name, last name, address, and phone number at minimum.  If you fail to provide all the requested information your registration maybe rejected.

We strive to assure the highest quality of life for those who choose to live, work, and play here while protecting the Wood County economic well-being for current and future generations.
