Emergency Managers Review Siren Placement

Posted: Updated:
When severe weather strikes, it's important to have a plan.

The Department of Emergency Services recommends everyone to get ready, get set and get safe, and they say having a plan to deal with severe summer weather is crucial.

Thousands of people are living in temporary housing like trailers and RVs in western North Dakota, and emergency services say residents who are new to the community should identify shelters and create a plan as soon as they move in. Some emergency managers say those providing rental spots at crew camps or RV parks should also have plans in place.

"Maybe these places with all the man camps, maybe it's time for the man camps to do something about sheltering. You can cross your fingers that it's never needed, but in the case like the other night, it's proven that it's something that needs to be talked about our approached," says Denise Brew the emergency manager of Dunn County.

On Monday, several residents in Dunn and McKenzie Counties had difficulties using their cell phones to make phone calls after the tornado on Monday. Brewer recommends using smart phone apps for alerts.
