SECONDS COUNT IN AN EMERGENCY!                                                                         Grafton County has instituted the CodeRed Emergency Notification System - an ultra high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows us to telephone targeted areas of Grafton County in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as a missing child or evacuation notices). The system is capable of dialing thousands of phone numbers per hour. It then delivers our recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number. A YouTube Video explaining Grafton County Sheriff’s Office CodeRed system can be viewed here-feel free to share it. It is important that all residents and business within the County subscribe to the system to ensure proper notification can be made during an emergency.  Subscription is quick and easy, and your information will remain confidential within our system and not be used for any other purpose.
