The city of Olive Branch is rolling out a new service that can alert residents of potential dangers in the community.
Mayor Sam Rikard signed contracts for the CodeRED alert system after it was approved by the Board of Alderman last month.
Weather warnings, service interruptions, and other important community messages are all alerts that users can receive under the system.
To opt in, users must live inside the city limits and register at the city's website.
Users can select what types of alerts they want to receive and how they would like to receive them.
Land lines, cell phones, email and text messages are all available options.
On Monday the city will send messages to users to promote its' weather alert feature.
