ECN is closely monitoring the path of Tropical Storm Andrea as it churns off the west coast of Florida. National Hurricane Center forecasters predict a turn toward the northeast with an additional increase in forward speed later today. The storm is expected to cause large accumulations of rain to coastal areas.
At this time, we encourage all of our clients in the projected path of Andrea to log into the CodeRED system and send test calls. This will give you a quick refresher of the system and allow you time to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. As community awareness is heightened, it is also a good opportunity to encourage citizens to update or enroll their information on your CNE page. Work with local media outlets for assistance publicizing your CodeRED mass notification system.
As a reminder, the CodeRED system is fully operational and capable of transmitting millions of your emergency messages related to the tropical storm. Our Client Support Specialists are available 24/7 to assist with launching calls and will closely monitor each client’s jobs to ensure that notifications are sent seamlessly.
Forecasters predict that impacts related to Tropical Storm Andrea will be felt over portions of the east coast through the weekend. Please call us at 866-939-0911 if there’s anything we can assist you with.
