County pushes weather notification options
1 0

When severe weather is approaching, people should have more than one way to find out what's happening.

That's according to Outagamie County emergency management director Lisa Van Schyndel.

She says the county's outdoor warning sirens are useful, but they shouldn't be the primary tool anymore.

She says the county is now participating in a notification system called At Hoc. Van Schyndel says people can sign up for alerts through the county's website. She says it sends text messages, emails, and calls to landlines and cell phones.

She says there are also a number of smartphone apps that people can download to get weather alerts. When people are at home, Van Schyndel says a weather radio will wake them up at night, if there's severe weather.

It's Severe Weather Awareness Week in the state.
