Default Re: Anyone else had this happen to them

Gotta remember that people in most places, are like most people. You get the good and the bad. Although a 911 staff not taking something seriously is VERY strange.

Anyway, yes I would still call 911 before anyone. I would call EC last. Not because I dislike EC, but because if you want to get a warning out, your best bet is 911 who can issue EMS immediately to the area, and the local radio/TV stations are a good place to start as well. EC can send warnings out via weather radio and the internet, but probably 99 out of 100 of the average population don't own a weather radio, and probably 9999 out of 10000 on the internet don't frequent ECs warning sites regularly.

So yah.. 911 first, then direct call to anyone who can broadcast to the general public (Tv/radio).
