McCracken County Office Of Emergency Management.
New local page for Citizen Corps and CERT. Use the link to the left for "Tornado and Thunderstorm Preparedness". We're urging all schools, health care facilities, businesses, and citizens to upgrade your weather radio to the newer, programmable "SAME" Weather Alert Radios.
"SAME" stands for "specific area message encoding". You program the radio to alert for emergencies ONLY in Paducah or McCracken County. When it alerts, it means it effects YOU. Not for an event 40 miles away.
