How does CodeRED™ Weather Warning work?

The system uses a polygon warning methodologies based on “Storm Based Warnings” direct from the National Weather Service (NWS). It contacts only those in the affected areas, eliminating many false alarms associated with prior notification methods. CodeRED™ Weather Warning monitors each NWS bulletin to determine the severity of the warning and the exact area(s) affected coupled with the predicted heading of the threatening storm. CodeRED™ Weather Warning then creates a calling database of all subscribers within the projected area of the severe weather. This calling database is then immediately submitted to the CodeRED™ Weather Warning automated calling system. By eliminating the need for human intervention to active warnings we have significantly decreased the response time for fast-moving storms.
