City, county governments implement changes following first test
SOMERSET, KENTUCKY (December 30, 2021) — The City of Somerset and Pulaski County Government will test the county’s tornado siren system a second time, implementing changes from last week’s initial review.
The second test is scheduled for noon (12 p.m.) Friday, Dec. 31, 2021. At that time, Pulaski County 911 will sound tornado sirens countywide and send out Code Red Weather Alert warnings to subscribers notifying them of the system test.
Residents and business owners are encouraged to use this test as an opportunity to review any tornado safety plans with their families and employees. They are also encouraged to sign up for the Code Red Alert system, which notifies subscribers by phone call, text and/or e-mail about emergencies ranging from severe weather to utilities issues like boil water advisories and water main breaks. Residents who have smartphones should also turn on notifications for all weather-related apps.
To sign up for Code Red alerts, text PULASKIKY to 99411 or visit https://public.coderedweb.com/CNE/en-US/B04A9DD4712C. Residents can create an account or continue to enroll as a guest to sign up.
