VILLAGE OF MEAD STORM WARNING PROCEDURES
In case of severe weather, the fire siren will be sounded and go up and down a few times This is only to alert members of the Fire Department to be on the watch It is also a good idea to keep tuned to a local channel/radio station if we are in a watch area. Many residents can receive updates via their cell phones from local television or radio stations.
If a funnel is actually spotted, the firemen will sound a steady blast on the siren. This is your signal to take cover at once. For those residents or businesses without basements go to the Alma Lutheran Church basement, 219 W. Fifth Street. The doors are opened during a storm warning.
All-Terrain Vehicles, Utility-type Vehicles and Golf Car Vehicles are required to be licensed within the Village of Mead. Contact the Village Office to obtain or renew your permit by APRIL 1. The permits are good for 1 year.
Not permitted: Motorbikes, Mopeds, Scooters, dirt bikes, and go carts!
