Racine police posted a video Friday to the department’s Facebook page to remind residents about the availability of Code Red, a countywide emergency alert system.
In a nutshell, Code Red targets residents in specific areas when a situation is taking place nearby.
Using last weekend’s kidnapping and shootout as the backdrop, police in the video detail how residents can register for alerts simply by entering their address and phone number. Then, people living within a designated area would get a call, an email or a text message with information about an incident.
Landlines that are listed will automatically get a call, but residents can register their cell phone, too.
Most police departments in Racine County participate in Code Red; residents do not have to live only in the City of Racine to participate.
