GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. (KBSI) – Graves County citizens are advised to sign up for Code Red alerts via phone after a test of the Graves County tornado sirens on Thursday found they did not activate.

The antenna at Mayfield City Hall was not transmitting a strong enough signal. Due to the time needed to get parts and complete repairs, the system is not likely to be fully functional until early this week.

The Graves County Office of Emergency Management advises citizens to sign up for Code Red alerts via phone while the siren activation issues are corrected.

Citizens are asked to sign up for emergency weather alerts by phone through the county’s Code Red system at: http://www.gravescountyky.com/county-gov/emergency-management.php. Click on Community Notification Enrollment to submit your information.
