Possibility Of Code Red Activation In The Falls

Wichita Falls City Officials told Newschannel 6 that their Code Red Emergency Alert System was never used during the Christmas Blizzard of 2009, and they say there's a possibility it might not be used during this winter storm.

Officials say they may not use the service because people don't like getting a phone message about what's happening outside, and that people in their cars who need the warnings will most likely not get them because they will be unreachable.

Officials do add, however, that Code Red could be activated if there are evacuations or shelters being opened.
