The Jeffco Sheriff’s Office is more than happy with how its new emergency notification system, CodeRED, performed during the Bluebell Fire.
The emergency calls had a successful connection rate of 84 percent, said Mark Techmeyer, sheriff’s spokesman. He said a connection rate of about 60 percent is considered acceptable nationally.
“We really couldn’t be more pleased,” Techmeyer said. “When you’re looking at 84 percent, it really went well.”
