Weather and safety tips
from Glade Fire Chief Robb
Sign Up For Emergency Alerts – Reverse 911 is a system through Hyper- Reach that uses cellphones or landline phones to alert citizens of incoming or current emergencies.
Our Cumberland County home seems to be having more severe weather coming more and more. The new 911 technology will give all Fairfield residents a new local emergencyalerts.
Hyper-Reach will call your home phone number(s) in the event of local emergencies or community alerts, as well as Weather Alerts.
Submitting the additional information below with the Community Sign Up option will allow your cellular phone, email, and/or TDD to be notified for local emergencies and community alerts as well.
Selecting the Weather Alerts option below will enable weather notifications to any phone or e-mail address. If you opt-out of Weather Alerts, you will not receive them, even on your land-line (if you enter it below).
Sign Up For Emergency Alerts – Reverse 911 is a system through Hyper Reach that uses cellphones or landline phones to alert citizens of incoming or current emergencies. This system will be for Tornadoes only.
The weather radios cover a large geographical area.
Some of our residents are in areas were they can not hear our sirens.
If the weather has thunder and lighting or hail it makes it even harder for the residents to hear the sirens.
For residents that are able to hear the sirens, this old technology will still save lives, but with the new Hyper-reach systems it will save more lives by reaching more residents earlier.
The new County’s Hyper-reach has the power of instant communication.
This is a free service and will give tornado warnings for our local area. It takes only about three minuets to fill out the form so you can take advantage of this system.
Some Safety Tips to Consider
Now is the time to prepare your vehicle for winter weather. This is a list of some of the items you should check or have checked before winter starts:
• Radiator for leaks and concentration of antifreeze
• Heater/windshield defroster
• Fluid Levels
• Exhaust System
• Windshield de-icer fluid to keep the spray and reservoir from freezing
• Windshield Wipers
Keep your fuel tank full or near full in order to run the engine and heater if you become stranded or you are caught on the road in a long line of slow or stopped traffic.
