PARADISE, Calif. - The Town of Paradise is moving forward with an Early Warning System that would alert residents in case of an emergency.

Tuesday, town officials provided an update on the project. It would be installed at various locations around town to make sure the siren can be heard everywhere by everyone.

The system is a Tier One priority projejct in the town's long-term recovery plan that was developed after the Camp Fire.

Town officials recently put out a survey online for people to fill out so they could get feedback on the project.

89% of residents surveyed said that an Early Warning System in the town would make them feel safer living in Paradise.

The system would be connected with the town's Code Red System and other cell phone notifications.

Disaster Recovery Director, Katie Simmons says, "We're making sure we are looking at it as a tool in the general tool box of emergency notifications for the community, so connectivity with cell technology and other notifications is important, the siren with voice command is important, but not as a stand alone system it would definitely be in conjunction with what we already have and what we are enhancing with community notifications in case of an emergency."

She says more information including proposed locations and costs will be presented during the next Paradise Town Council meeting on November 10th.

Town officials say in the survey they found that people not only want a siren sound but also verbal instructions and they are looking at how to customize the siren system to fit the communitys expectations. 

Once the design is approved by council, the town will use the design to apply for FEMA funding through their Mitigation Grant Program for money to construct the system. The town would have to receive that funding before construction.
