Douglas County asks residents for feedback on emergency notification

The Douglas County Emergency Management Agency Director said a new survey about emergency notification has a dual purpose.

The county is teaming up with the University of Missouri to ask for feedback on the county's CodeRED emergency notification system. This comes after the county dealt with a tornado during the Nov. 17 outbreak.

Douglas County EMA Director Joe Victor said the county will use the survey results to beef up the notification system.  But he's also hoping the survey will educate people that the system exists, and that it's worth your time to sign up.



Victor added that the county is exploring an online notification system as well.

You can give your feedback through Feb.17 by going to the Douglas County website or by calling 800-430-1299.
