The CodeRED weather warning system increases the safety of Saline County residents, according to Sam Gately, who reviewed the emergency weather alert program for Saline County Quorum Court members Monday night.
Gately, deputy director of the county's Office of Emergency Management, spoke at the start of the court's Public Works and Safety Committee meeting.
Gately noted that the program's slogan â€” "When seconds count, count on CodeRED" â€” is true.
