ASHBURN, GA (WALB) - People in Turner County have a new tool to warn them in case a tornado is headed their way. A new Siren has been installed on Martin Luther King Drive in Ashburn.
The siren was purchased thanks to a 33,000 dollar matching grant from FEMA. The county also bought weather radios for schools, daycares and health care facilities. They also installed the Code Red System.
They hope this new siren will reach people in Sycamore and will test it out Thursday. "We have to get it in line with our other systems. So tomorrow there will be alarms going off. So just be patient," said Turner County Commission Chairman, Daryl Hall.
"Well we just want to be sure that everyone is covered. So if through no fault of your own, you happen to lose your phone or electrical service, we still have you covered," said Turner County EMA Director.
Anyone in Turner County who still needs to register for the Code Red system, can do so by calling the road department at 229-567-4057.
