Background Discussion

This database of subscribers is provided by Verizon to agencies engaged in the provision of emergency services; it includes terms and conditions and pricing. Use of this database is permitted only for the provision of emergency service.

Manatee County and Manatee County Sheriff’s office uses this database in concert with the “CodeRed Emergency Notification System,” a web-hosted application. The application may also be used by various agencies for various emergency notification purposes. 

The CodeRed notification system along with this database is administered and managed by the Manatee County Public Safety and Utilities Departments. It is used for evacuation notices and special hazards (gas leaks, etc.); city and county agencies also used the system to issue “boil water” notices to residents of specific areas.
