BATESBURG-LEESVILLE, SC – On Friday, January 22nd between 10:00am and 12:00pm, the Town of Batesburg-Leesville will test its new CodeRED emergency notification system. This test is being conducted in order to introduce the system to all those that have registered, and to evaluate area hardware.
The Town recently contracted with Emergency Communications Network for the CodeRED system to allow town staff to inform residents and businesses of developing situations. Town Manager, Ted Luckadoo, said, “the system will allow us to let folks know about boil water advisories, unexpected closures at Town Hall or changes to Town service schedules, emergency situations that may call for action on the part of residents, or other important, time sensitive information.”
Residents and businesses can sign-up at anytime by calling Town Hall at 532-4601 or by visiting our website at www.batesburg-leesville.org. Folks must sign up by 10:00am on Friday in order to receive the first “all call” that will introduce them to the system. If you sign up after 10:00am you will still be in the system for future calls and alerts, but will not be a part of this first call group.
All questions regarding the CodeRED system should be directed to staff at Town Hall, 532-4601.
