County now seeing Red
When severe weather is looming, county residents have another way to stay ahead of the storm, thanks to a new system now in use locally.
According to Emergency Management Director Randy Stewart, Tunica County became part of a rapid alert communications system DeltAlert several months ago. Officials spent that time testing the system. Just days ago, they learned that DeltAlert had been acquired by Emergency Communications Network. That company utilizes a system called CodeRed, and all former DeltAlert customers will be transitioned into the new system. CodeRed is already being used by neighboring DeSoto County.
Stewart said the new system should be a valuable tool for Tunica County.
