Aiken County Emergency Management has issued a CodeRed alert for Aiken County on behalf of Sheriff Michael Hunt, asking local residents to stay off the roads unless there was a “true” emergency.


The alert called the ongoing winter storm “dangerous” and stressed that only emergency vehicles should be on the roads at this time as “numerous vehicle accidents are straining emergency resources.”
