Reminder: SKYWARN Class is Thursday April 11, 2013

The meeting and class will be held at the Roane Co. Rescue Squad building in Midtown at 7:00pm (Eastern).

This meeting is open to anyone who would like to attend.

Emergency Email Alerts

We have added a new ARES section to the website. The new section features a red alert box that will appear at the top of every page on www.ke4rx.org during an emergency or when another message needs to be displayed.

This new section also allows you to subscribe to emergency email alerts. All you have to do is put in your email address, name, and subscription preferences. You can join categories to only receive emails about certain things.

If you would like to join the list, please go to: http://www.ke4rx.org/emergency/

Your email address will be kept completely secure and you can opt out of the emails at any time if you would like by going to that same page.

Note on 29 Apr 2008: I have manually added all ARES members to this list using the emails provided for ARES membership. There is a category to send these only to ARES folks. There is also a category to send notices to people for weather alerts. This may include people who are NOT ARES members, but it DOES include all ARES members as well. We send to a few people who have requested to receive weather alerts who are not active ARES members. This is in line with our mission in the Roane County Emergency Plan as ESF2 (Communications): we have a responsibility regarding WARNING issues as well as emergency operations. This is also consistent with Roane County’s designation by the National Weather Service as a “Storm Ready Community.” 73 DE KI4FZT, EC – Roane County
