Happy Mother's Day from the Belton Police Department!!

This is a follow up post in regards to the tornado sirens. They have been checked by the company that maintains them. Most checked out in proper working order, there were batteries changed in a few. We are still actively evaluating the current procedures regarding the tornado warnings and setting the sirens off. In the next week or so I hope to have an update on the procedures and will put it on here as well. Thank you for your patience.

Everbridge Cass County Missouri Emergency Notification & Weather Warnings System Emergency telephone alerts to the entire county or targeted areas has been implemented in Cass County. Using the 9-1-1 data base of landline telephones, addresses and mapping, the system will be activated by public safety officials when necessary. A list of some incidents that this notification will be used are: Environmental (Natural Disasters) Fires Floods Dangerous Water Conditions Water Safety Alert Dam/Levy Breaks Search and Rescue Missing Children Missing Elderly Missing Disabled Evacuation Notices Evacuation Routes Man-Made Disasters Terrorism Threats Nuclear Hazards Bio Terrorism Threats Chemical Spills Gas Leaks HAZMAT Emergencies Crime Hostage Situations Prisoner Escape Warnings Sexual Predator Alert Amber Alert A separate feature is the WEATHER ALERT NOTIFICATION. Those that would like to be notified of weather warnings (NOT weather watches) must sign up. The weather warning notifications will be given to targeted areas. If your address is in the path of the storm, you will receive notification via your registered phone, whether you register your landline phone or your cell phone. If you are not in the path of a storm warning, you will not receive a notification. No waking you up in the middle of the night if you are not in danger! But, you must sign up for this free service! You can click on the link below to sign up https://member.everbridge.net/index/453003085613061#/signup FAQs How does the Emergency Notification System work? If a situation arises that citizens need to know about and act to protect their lives or property, a person of authority will notify the appropriate 911 center. The 911 Operator will activate the proper prerecorded notification or current-scripted notification by selecting the specific area. This is done by online access. Everbridge mass dials the affected area and distributes the message. What if I am not home and do not receive the message? If you have an answering machine, it will give you the message when you get home. But if you have registered your cell phone the message will go to your home phone AND your cell phone. You will not miss an emergency notification. But you must register your cell phone information.https://member.everbridge.net/index/453003085613061#/signup How does the Weather Alert Notification work? Everbridge uses our data base and the information from the National Weather Service to issue telephone notifications in case of weather warnings. Using the mapping provided by Cass County 911, when your location is pinpointed as being in an area of a weather warning, the registered phone numbers are called and you will receive a prerecorded message informing you of the danger. Is the Weather Alert Notification going to wake me up in the middle of the night with constant warnings? No. The alerts you receive will only be those alert that affect your registered location. If a warning is issued in Cass County but not in your registered location you will NOT receive a call. Even if you can hear sirens from inside your house, we encourage you to have the weather alert notifications. You may have a child at home that you need to check on. Or, you may not hear the siren but would hear the phone ring. The deadliest tornadoes occur after dark and through the night. What can I do if I decide I to cancel the Weather Alert Notification? To cancel your Weather Alert Notification you can click on the link below https://member.everbridge.net/index/453003085613061#/login You can cancel or change your information at any time. How much do I have to pay for the Weather Alert Notification? Not a penny! It is free to all Cass County residences and businesses. Will my information be used for anything else other than the Emergency Notifications or the Weather Alert Notification? No, absolutely not! How do I know my information is current and correct? At any time you may go onto the Everbridge website and put in your current information. This will update the data base. It will not make another record. The landline database is updated four times a year; in March, June, September and December. If you move, you should register immediately. The database for the Emergency Notification System will be updated with your current information during the update. But until the next update you will want to be registered so that you will receive any emergency notifications. Remember to update your cell phone information as well! https://member.everbridge.net/index/453003085613061#/login What should I do when I receive an Emergency Notification? The message will tell you what to do or where to find out more information. What should I do when I receive a Weather Alert Notification? Everyone should have a preplan for weather warnings. You are urged to know what to do ahead of time to protect you and your property. For instance; in a tornado you need to go to the basement and wait for an all clear. If you do not have a basement to go to, you will need to go to a center room in the house or building; preferably one without a window. If you have a bathroom in the middle of the house or building, it is a good idea to have a twin mattress to cover yourself with as you lie in the tub. Visit Ready.gov for additional information. If I have a problem with the Emergency Notification System or the Weather Alert System who should I call? We want these systems to assist you and keep you safe. If you should have any complaint or concern, please contact Robin Tieman, Cass County Emergency Services Board Executive Director, 816-887-1952 or EMAIL robint@casscountyesb.com.

There have been lots of questions about the storm event from last night with regards to the sirens, tornado watches, warnings etc. We may have another event today and want everyone to be as prepared as possible. Here are the definitions of Tornado Watch and Tornado Warning. • Tornado Watch- A tornado is possible. When there is a Watch, you should move to be near enough to a shelter or sturdy building that you can be inside safely in a few minutes if there is a warning or if you see signs of a tornado approaching. Remain alert for approaching storms. Watch the sky and stay tuned to radio or television for information. • Tornado Warning- A Tornado has been sighted or indicated via radar by the National Weather Service. You should take shelter immediately. Move to an interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building. Avoid windows. The only all-clear notification is when the warning has expired or has been removed by the National Weather Service. Some questions that have been asked on our Facebook page: • Have you moved sirens? No. The sirens have not been moved. • Did you test the sirens this week, on 05/02/2018? No. We did not test the sirens on Wed due to the possibility of severe weather threat. (They are tested the 1st Wed of the month at 11am unless there is a possibility of severe weather) • Why didn’t we get an all-clear signal or alert? The only all-clear notification is when the warning has expired or has been removed by the National Weather Service. • Why don’t the sirens continue to go off? The sirens are set off manually by the 911 dispatchers when told to do so by the shift commander, fire chief, or the Emergency Management supervisor or patrol officer. They are programmed to go off for 3 minutes. If they are told to set them off again they do so at that time. • Why can’t I hear the sirens inside my house? They were designed to notify people who are outside of their residence. The link below from the National Weather Service FAQ’s may answer a lot of those questions. Below are some links to information that may be helpful and further answer several questions that have been asked on the Facebook page. FAQ’s from the National Weather Service about outdoor warning sirens- https://www.weather.gov/dvn/sirenFAQ The link for Cass County’s Emergency Notification System.- https://member.everbridge.net/index/453003085613061#/signup Hopefully this information is helpful and will clarify some of the questions. If you still have questions please call the Police Dept at 816 331 1500. If you notice any issues during the monthly test please contact Disp Supervisor Carla Wills at 816 331 1500. Dispatch has received a few calls today about some issues from last night’s events and will be passing that information on to Emergency Management so they can contact the company that maintains the sirens.

If you did not hear your tornado sirens or had difficulty hearing them, you may call the Police Department and speak with DISPATCH Thursday morning AFTER 7AM to report the issue. Please DO NOT call tonight, wait till tomorrow morning. Thank you! **Please note, tornado sirens are meant as an outside alert. They are not typically heard from inside your home. They also do not continuously sound during a tornado warning. They run for approximately 3 minutes and will not sound again unless they are activated an additional time.

The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Warning for Cass County until 10:30pm tonight. If you need shelter, the Belton High School is available.
