SARASOTA Co., Fla (WWSB) -- Sarasota County is encouraging property owners, both year-round and seasonal, to sign up for the free CodeRED alert notification system.
The CodeRED system provides phone and text message alerts to property owners about important issues in their neighborhood.
"Getting accurate and fast information on an event in your neighborhood can save you time, money and possibly even your life," said Paula Parsons Grubb, of Sarasota County Public Utilities.
"The free CodeRED system can alert you to evacuations, severe weather warnings, water and sewer service interruptions, road closures, Amber Alerts and more."
Registration is free, and Sarasota County does not share the information with private third-party vendors.
