With just 10 days to go until the September 30 deadline to respond to the 2020 census, the self response rate for Cleveland County is 62 percent. Census takers continue door-to-door efforts but the potential loss to our community over ten years is astonishing.

Kings Mountain Fire Department Joins Cleveland County’s Emergency Warning System

Emergency Warning Sirens Will Be Tested at 12 Noon on the First Saturday of Each Month Starting this Week

Beginning Saturday, September 5, at 12 noon, Kings Mountain’s emergency warning sirens will be tested along with all of the warning sirens in Cleveland County. After that, on the first Saturday of each month at 12 noon, Cleveland County 911 Communications will test the emergency warning system for the entire county. This testing will help ensure that the sirens operate during a true emergency.

“It is imperative that the emergency warning system for the entire county be reliable and available to warn the public of pending severe weather 24 hours a day, 365 days a year,” said Perry Davis, Emergency Management Director for Cleveland County. “The addition of Kings Mountain’s siren to the system utilized by the rest of the county is a vital piece of that coverage,” Davis added.

Kings Mountain Fire Department’s sirens have been reprogrammed to communicate on the same frequency as Cleveland County and have been through initial testing. September 5 will be the first countywide test that includes Kings Mountain’s sirens.

According to Cleveland County’s Assistant 911 Communications Director Stori McIntyre, “Cleveland County Communications is excited to partner with Kings Mountain Fire Department to provide lifesaving notifications during inclement weather.”

“We are happy that we could use our existing equipment and still become part of the system already in place throughout the county,” said Chief Thomas Harmon of the Kings Mountain Fire Department. “Cleveland County’s 911 Communications Center can simply transmit on one frequency and activate every emergency warning siren throughout Cleveland County simultaneously,” added Chief Harmon. “Now, Kings Mountain will be a part of that system.”

In addition to the monthly testing, the sirens will be activated for tornado warnings ONLY. The sirens will NOT be used to alert the public of tornado watches, ONLY tornado warnings. A tornado warning signifies that a tornado has been spotted and is in the area.

The sirens will also NOT be used to alert people about watches or warnings for thunderstorms, severe weather, wind, lightning, or winter weather.

“We do not want people to become immune to the sound of the siren,” said Harmon. “We want people to understand that if they hear the siren, they should seek shelter from a tornado immediately,” Harmon added.

“The siren testing on the first Saturday of each month is a great time for the public to review their emergency weather preparedness,” said Harmon. “We hope that this will lessen some of the confusion during severe weather alerts.”

Harmon continued, “Instead of people calling the fire
station or 911 when the siren activates to find out what is going on, they should immediately take precautions for potentially dangerous weather.”

Tornado preparedness information can be found on multiple websites including the American Red Cross, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Centers for Disease Control, and the National Weather Center.

Cleveland County is nestled in the rolling piedmont of the southwestern portion of North Carolina situated in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Our county is the gateway between Asheville and Charlotte. Cleveland County is centered between two of the largest metropolitan areas of the Carolinas-- Charlotte and Greenville/Spartanburg. In addition to providing us with the spectacular changing seasons, our favorable geographic setting also offers wonderful nearby attractions -- steep mountains in one direction, wide beaches in the other, and topped-off with a surrounding array of bustling metropolitan centers, all close enough to be forever tempting day-trippers. With our family-oriented lifestyle, small-town charm, and southern, festival atmosphere, Cleveland County is a great place to live, work, play, and just enjoy life.

Dear County Officials... When does the county start to seriously address the major problem of littering in this county? Not limited to the highways and on-ramps, but all of the side streets around the county are just disgusting. While the simple answer, is that people shouldn't be pigs and should care about what their country/community looks like, we obviously need to go deeper. Here is a suggestion... change the fine for littering to 5,000.00. Let's see what people do then. Can't pay the fine? Then, it's 7 nights in jail. Yup, I'm serious in my suggestion. I pay good taxes and this county needs to step up it's "efforts" in this matter. If not, perhaps I should run for local office and show people how we can get this done. Anyone agree that this needs to be addressed??
