Explanation of Our Alert System Color Codes
Note: Please do not call 911 just to get
information during an area-wide emergency. The 911 system is
designed specifically to enable the dispatch of emergency responders
to those in immediate need of assistance, and not for providing
situation reports to the community. [More
area-wide emergency, the 911 center is typically flooded with requests
for emergency responders, and your non-emergency call for
information may very well cause someone to lose their life.
Go here to sign up for the Wide Area Rapid Notification (W.A.R.N.)
system, which is designed to promulgate emergency information to the
community. For more information about the W.A.R.N. system, call the
Wood/Wirt County 911 center at (304)
here for more information on communicating during an emergency.
