After the torrential rains and local tornado, the County is considering ways to become better prepared in the event of a disaster. Specifically mentioned were sirens or other similar methods of alerting the public especially through the night when people are sleeping. Hopefully, at some point the County could invest in a service which calls homes in a particular geographic neighborhood with a warning message which is already in use in parts of California to notify residents about wildfires. It’s similar to the computer phone messages that we receive from the school system when there’s some event. Perhaps the county already owns the technology but would need to adapt it to focus on zipcodes or neighborhoods. Another suggestion is to sign-up for text messages through the County’s website which offers a 24 hour weather alert system. Being prepared in the case of an emergency is crucial, now with the news about the earthquake in China and the cyclone in Myanmar, it should give us pause to consider how to better equip ourselves for when we are faced with another disaster.
