After the severe weather ripped through Chester County this week, Emergency Management Officials are looking for new ways to alert residents in the event of future storms. Though the most damage can be found along county roads in the, there are no Tornado sirens outside of the Henderson city limits. That’s why EMA director Johny Farris is working to set up a phone call warning system that would send out an alert to anyone in danger of severe weather. All residents would have to do is sign up and they’ll receive a phone call letting them know about current weather threats. “It’s free, wont cost them a thing in the world. It’s gonna be free to every Chester Countian and it would be a safe thing for their home and that way they could get notices before any danger and take the proper action before the storm, said Farris. He adds he hopes to have the system installed and working by next month so people can start signing up.
