Fire Department- Emergency Weather
The City of Lowell has a mission to make available the best emergency notification and educational program possible. This will include notification, via emergency radio, all watches, warnings and other local and regional emergencies such as possible flooding, hazardous material releases and terrorist acts. We will also provide educational programs through the city web site and hard copy. Please look at the following links for further information.
We now have the Weather Alert Radios at the Fire Station. They will be pre-programmed to receive Weather Alerts, Advisory's and Warnings for Benton County. This programming can be changed to include other counties if you desire. You will need to program the time after you put in batteries or plug the unit in. The manual provided with the radio will show you how do all programming. The cost of the units will be $30.00 each. You may pick yours up at the fire department offices between 8AM and 4PM Monday through Friday. You will need to provide documentation that you live inside the Lowell City Limits. You can pay with cash or check.
The Fire Department Staff will be glad to assist you with any problems or programming you may have with your radio.
The Fire Department also has a number of Smoke Detectors available to families who cannot afford them. Please contact us on how to recieve one. It is very important that you and your family are protected against fires. It is our goal to insure that all our citizens are protected.
Please contact your City Council members and let them know if you support this project or not. For further information please contact the Fire Department at 770-0166 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
