The automated activation system installation for the Early Warning Sirens (EWS) has been completed.
This means that Crawford County can monitor the National Weather System for tornado warnings and will activate Crawford County's EWS sirens when warnings are received, a Crawford County Emergency Management Agency news release says.
The completion of the system's installation corresponds with Governor Deal's proclamation of this week as Severe Weather Awareness Week in Georgia.
The EWS System will be fully tested on Wednesday, February 9 at 1:30 p.m.
All sirens will sound for 3 minutes. The school system plans to activate their Tornado Drill plan, in conjunction with Wednesday marked as Statewide Tornado Drill Day.
