Emergency Management

Emergency Management

The mission the Dalton Emergency Management Department is to provide a prepared and capable emergency management program for the Town of Dalton through training, community education and preparedness by providing information and education to the general public, area emergency responders and volunteers. The Dalton Emergency Management Department was created under State Law to coordinate the response to emergency situations that the town may face. The Emergency Management Department works with town departments and committees along with local business and agencies to coordinate the response to emergencies with State (MEMA) and Federal (FEMA) agencies as well as other communities within our area.


The Town of Dalton has implemented the CodeRED system, a high-speed emergency notification service provided by Ormond Beach, FL-based Emergency Communications Network. The CodeRED system will serve as the backbone of the Dalton Emergency planning and communications outreach to both citizens and town personnel by using the system capabilities to send telephone calls, text messages, emails and social media alerts in an effort to effectively inform residents to protect life and property.

By clicking the provided link residents can choose which method or methods that they wish to be notified: cell phone call, text, email, and/or home phone number. You may enter multiple points of contact. You do not have to have an account in order to use the system. You may also use the link to opt out of Code Red if you no longer want to receive notifications. All residents are encouraged to visit the CodeRED website.
