Winter Safety

 

The National Weather Service refers to winter storms as the "Deceptive Killers" because most deaths are indirectly related to the storm. Instead, people die in traffic accidents on icy roads and of hypothermia from prolonged exposure to cold. It is important to be prepared for winter weather before it strikes.  In addition to the info found on our site, we encourage everyone to check out NOAA's winter safety tips at http://www.weather.gov/wrn/winter_safety.

 

Emergency Notification

 

 

To help grow our database with the most reliable information, we are strongly encouraging everyone to register on our Code Red Community Notification Enrollment Page (CNE).  The secure, customized CNE page allows our residents and businesses to add or update their contact information to ensure they will be included when an emergency, general, or weather message is sent – unlisted numbers, mobile numbers, TD/TTY requirements can all be entered.  Below are some advantages of the Weather Notification service provided by Code Red:

  • Stay Safe: Code Red Weather Warning will alert registered citizens, in the direct path of severe weather

  • Alert Types: Notifications will be sent out moments after a severe thunderstorm warning, tornado warning, or flash flood warning has been issued by the National Weather Services.  Only citizens in the immediate impact area will be alerted

  • Caller ID:  Registered citizens will know the call is from Code Red Weather Warning when you see the telephone number 1-800-566-9780.  If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone simply dial the number back.

  • Privacy: Your contact information will remain private and will only be used for severe weather or emergency alerts.

  • Register to get the Call:  Users must opt-in to receive weather notifications. 

With everyone taking a moment to fill out the CNE, we can ensure the citizens of Spartanburg County receive timely notifications via multiple platforms (email, cell, landline, text).  If you wish to receive these notifications, please click on the logo above:
