New emergency notification system in place for Macon County residents

MACON COUNTY - The Macon County Emergency Telephone System Board has announced that a new mass notification system will be used to provide residents with emergency and weather alerts.

The new system, titled the "Macon County Emergency Alert and Notification System," is designed to send time-sensitive messages and alerts to residents via their home, mobile, or business phones, and through text messages and email.  This new system replaces the "Code Red" mass notification system.

Residents can participate in this free program by registering online.  Once registered, you will be able to choose which alerts you will receive, as well as how you would receive the information.  Residents can update their preferences and contact information at any time.

For more information on this new alert system, or to sign up to receive notifications of alerts in your area, visit and look for the "Macon County Emergency Alert & Notification System" button.
