CodeRED Weather Warning is an opt-in only weather warning product that taps into the National Weather Service's Storm Based Warnings.  It automatically alerts affected citizens in the path of severe weather just moments after the warning has been issued.  You can be notified by your local emergency response team in the event of emergency situations or critical community alerts. Examples include: evacuation notices, bio-terrorism alerts, boil water notices, and missing child reports. This information will remain the property of ECN and will not be disclosed unless compelled to do so by a court of sufficient jurisdiction.
