LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jeffersonville, Indiana. has a new emergency notification system -- and city leaders are asking residents to sign up for it, according to a news release.

It's called CodeRED, and it is expected to notify area residents of imminent threats to health and safety via phone, text message, e-mail or social media.

"We'd like as many people to sign up as possible," said Amir Mousavi, the safety director of the Office of Safety Management, who oversees the system. "It's one of the primary tools we can use to notify people of emergency situations. It's designed to protect life, property and environment."

"The new system will give us a valuable tool to better communicate with the residents when facing emergency situations," said Mayor Mike Moore. "It seems having an adequate emergency notification system is an important step in protecting the public."

Funding for CodeRED was unanimously approved by City Council. Jeffersonville is among several jurisdictions in the area to use the system including Louisville, Clarksville and Charlestown.
