LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Lexington County officials have addressed why some people received CodeRED calls early Wednesday morning. The notification did not indicate an emergency. 

"The calls that were sent out were not for an emergency notification, rather, to alert residents that the County is now utilizing this program to deliver time-sensitive public safety information and how our residents can sign up for it," Lexington County spokesperson Harrison Cahill said. 

Some took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to question the alert. 

Cahill says that if residents receive a call or email from CodeRED that it is not a scam. It is a legitimate system, utilized also by SCEMD.
