MEAD STORM WARNING PROCEEDURES
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 tv channel or radio station if we are in a watch area. Residents can also receive updates and follow the storm’s path on their cell phones, laptops, or computers.
If a funnel is actually spotted, the Fire Department 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. A member of the Fire Department will have the door open if we are in a storm warning.
Thank you, Sara Nicola, for chairing the Annual Mead Easter Egg Hunt.
In addition, thank you to all who helped before or during the event, Mrs. Weiss and her students at Mead High School, and the many who contributed candy and dollar donations towards the event.
