With the severe weather season upon us, it is vital for residents to keep themselves informed of the latest happenings.
A free tool offered by DeWitt County and the City of Clinton is the Code Red Alert system. CENCOM Coordinator for DeWitt County, Tony Harris explains the Code Red system informs residents on weather alerts to boil orders in your neighborhood.
The notifications can come through a number of ways. Harris explains you can get the notification via phone call to a cell phone or land line. You can also have it emailed or have a text sent to your cell phone.
Once you register an email address or phone number, you can customize what notifications you want to receive. Harris also notes, if a warning comes for an area where you are not registered, you won't receive the notification.
Again, to get registered for the notifications, visit clintonillinois.com or dewittcountyill.com.
