Knox E-warning system ready tomorrow

The county sent over a note, saying that tomorrow Mayor Tim Burchett, Commissioner Mike Hammond, "and others" will announce details for a new emergency notification service (that has the ability to instantly warn residents of approaching storms).

They'll hold the shin dig at 1:30 p.m. in the Mayor's Office (that's the county side of the Death Star).

We actually broke this story about a year ago. You can find the original awesomeness RIGHT SMACK HERE

Anyhoo, the e-notification system will allow the county to quickly provide emergency telephone, text, or email notices to every one of its residents at one time or focus only on a single neighborhood or street corner if need be.
Burchett and Hammond will be the first to sign up for the service tomorrow and will encourage others to do the same.
