When seconds count In an emergency...
Hanover County Public Safety uses the CodeRED Emergency Notification
System - an ultra-high-speed telephone communication service for
emergency notifications and the distribution of information considered
to be important.
This system allows us to telephone all or targeted areas of the county in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action, such as an evacuation, contaminated water, hazardous chemical spill, etc. This system is capable of dialing the entire county within minutes. It then delivers a message describing the situations to a live person or an answering machine in the affected area, possibly including instructions requiring immediate action on the part of the recipient.
Important: Use your physical Hanover County address. Do not use post office box or out-of-town addresses. Should you at any time desire to be removed from the calling list, you may do so by calling Hanover County Emergency Communications at 804-365-6140.
