Our fall severe weather season is upon us. And now it’s time to focus on our neighbors in Talbot County, Georgia. We started in Beauregard in May and now following the end of the tornado track in those hardest hit areas in around the city of Talbotton, which occurred on March 3rd.
Here’s an opportunity to meet our community to help them better prepare.
Now Talbot County residents can add the Talk-About two Way Radios to their Emergency Preparedness Kits. The First Alert Weather Team, along with our Motorola Solutions partner teamed up with EMA Director, Leigh Erenheim and Talbotton Chief of Police Justin “Jake” Johnson to bring the radios to those impacted the most.
Scroll to the next slide for our Beauregard stories and our Motorola Solutions Talk-About-T-480 Two Way Radios.
We have sought out Lee County residents, who escaped serious injury on March 3rd, to see if we can enhance their weather preparedness. Having a plan and alerting them, with enough time to be safe before severe weather strikes.
Mayor Bubba Copeland and Commissioner Robert Ham both helped us organize 15 residents of Smiths Station and 15 residents at or near ground zero in Beauregard to bring us in that space that had too many residents left with only minutes to seek shelter or were lost without communication. Now our residents have a plan, and we were able to help out with weather preparedness.
We will take you back tomorrow to meet some more of these awesome and inspiring residents in these hard hit areas of Lee County. A special thanks to Motorola Solutions and the Lee County Flea Market for their ongoing support of weather preparedness and keeping us safe.
