Sheriff’s office launches public safety announcement system
April 16, 2013 — The Lassen County Sheriff’s Office is launching a new public safety mass notification system. To provide this service, Lassen County Sheriff Dean Growdon is contracting with CodeRED®, one of the leading industry-leading high-speed mass notification systems.
This will allow the sheriff’s office to effectively communicate time-sensitive messages through a variety of traditional and modern communications mediums. CodeRED will allow public safety alerts to be delivered seconds after the sheriff’s office launches a message. The sheriff’s office will also be able to send mass alerts on behalf of other law enforcement agencies and fire agencies and public health.
Alerts can come in the form of a voice call, text message or email addresses.
