Dispatch center will test emergency alert system Nov. 1
The Dakota Communications Center will do a mass notification call Nov. 1. Before that, officials want residents to be aware that they can sign up to be notified in the case of emergencies in the area.
The DCC operates the Emergency Alert System. The system allows the DCC to notify people of emergencies such as gas leaks, pandemics, floods, nuclear situations and other disasters, said DCC operations director Cheryl Pritzlaff.
