How do you announce weather warnings to the public?

Warnings about weather are communicated to our citizens by several different methods. The City of Paris uses Rave Mobile Safety to issue information by voice over the telephone, text messaging, and e-mail. Citizens are encouraged to sign up for the service by clicking here. NWS weather warnings are sent out automatically by RAVE Mobile Safety whenever a warning involves the City of Paris. Outdoor warning sirens are used to notify people outside of their homes that severe weather is occurring. Upon hearing an outdoor siren, citizens should go indoors and listen to our local electronic media or scanners. The city also uses a service provided by Optimum communications, which allows city officials to interrupt the local cable system for emergency messages.
