When severe weather hits Louisa County the sheriffs office stays alert and is responsible for keeping everyone safe and informed. Chief Deputy Caudle says when severe weather hits Louisa County they have many things that they can do to get information out such as a code red. He says code red is an ultra high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows them to telephone all or targeted areas of the county in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action. He says the system is capable of dialing hundreds of phone numbers per minute. It then delivers a recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.
