East Texas Earthquake Town Gets Alert System
The earthquake ridden town in East Texas is taking steps for preparedness since it has been shaken, not once, not twice, but three times by earthquakes.
And all in the past two weeks. Timpson officials say they're re-making their emergency response plan to include earthquakes.
Officials say they've reached out to other cities which have dealt with disastrous quakes for tips and guidance.
And, although the earthquakes in Timpson caused minimal damage, city leaders say it's best to be prepared for the worst and they've installed a "code red" alert system.
The reverse 9-1-1 automation will issue warnings or information for assistance before and after an emergency by calling or emailing those who are signed up.
And, there's a website where you can go for more info on the "code red" alert system. It's cityoftimpson.com.
