Is CodeRed appropriate for all emergency notifications?
No. CodeRed is only one of the many tools and has its limitations. It does take some time to set up a CodeRed notification and make the calls. Threats in progress, such as a tornado that was just spotted, would not give emergency managers enough time to make a CodeRed notification. Emergencies that occur in a very brief time frame are not good candidates for a CodeRed type of notification. Other options may be more appropriate.
