West: Town To Get Emergency Alert Phone System

WEST (September 3, 2014) The First United Methodist Church in West is funding an emergency alert system for residents of the town where a fertilizer plant explosion in April 2013 killed 15, injured hundreds and destroyed or damaged scores of homes and buildings.

The system will allow officials to send out automated alerts to residents in the event of a major emergency.

The church will cover the almost $4,000 cost for two years of operation of the alert system, drawing from donations it received in the wake of the deadly explosion, Pastor Jimmy Sansom said.
