On February 1, 2021 CodeRED will begin the process of validating all Wood County resident phone numbers. At 9:00 am February 1, 2021, a countywide test call will occur. Once the call is completed, the Wood County Emergency Management Agency will contact CodeRED to validate all the numbers called, both those completed and those with no response. CodeRED will then attempt to verify if those numbers with no response are still working numbers.
This validation is important because the more numbers in the system, the longer it takes to complete calling all numbers. By eliminating non-working numbers, notification times can be decreased.
