Facebook page to warn Monroe residents about emergencies

Monroe County 911 Director Tim Wilson says the Monroe County Office of Emergency Services now has a Facebook page.

Wilson said the page will be used to disseminate important information or instructions to county residents in the event of a severe weather event or other emergency.

Weather advisories, watches and warnings issued by the National Weather Service will also be posted on the page.

The site will also contain information on how to prepare for a storm along with other information that will be useful to Monroe County residents.

In making this announcement, Wilson said Facebook is a great social medium that will enable the county to relay pertinent information to County residents and such information can be shared through a status post.
