Plainview to start testing of code red emergency system

Starting Wednesday, Plainview will begin the testing of its code red emergency notification system.

The calls will start Wednesday morning and continue until the entire code red database has been called. About 2,000 calls are scheduled to go out.

The test will focus on the area between 5th and 24th St. and Columbia and Joliet St. 

Plainview's Emergency Management Coordinator Captain Derrick McPherson encourages all residents to sign up for the service.

"This system only works with the citizens' cooperation," McPherson said. "By them signing up on this system, that's what makes this Code Red system a positive thing for Plainview."

You can sign up for the Code Red alerts here: http://plainviewtx.org/index.aspx?NID=172.

The call is just a routine test, as well as to remind and update the citizens of Plainview about the program.
