The CodeRED system is used to send emergency notifications, from evacuation notices to missing child alerts. Residents and businesses located within Nottoway County are encouraged to sign up for CodeRED to be sure they receive timely emergency notifications and other important information and instructions when alerts are issued. This is our way of notifying you in an emergency situation.
When you enroll in the CodeRED system, alerts are issued to you by your geographical location. Alerts can be sent to your cell phone, landline, by text, and even email. You get to choose! With CodeRED, you get the option of also receiving the CodeRED Weather Warning. These alerts are automatically generated when the National Weather Service issues a warning for your location. This early warning could prove to be life-saving.
The CodeRED alert system is free to Nottoway County residents.
The Town of Blackstone is pleased to provide the CodeRED service, our town-to-resident notification system. With this service, town leaders can quickly send personalized voice messages, text messages, emails to residents and businesses with specific information about time-sensitive or common-interest issues such as severe weather warnings, impending emergencies, emergency instructions and local community matters. The CodeRED service is used to supplement our current communication plans and augment public safety/first responder services.

In order to add other telephone numbers, cellular telephone numbers, SMS text numbers and email addresses, citizens must add them to the system.
