At a recent work session of the City of Bowling Green, the Board of Aldermen decided to notify residents of severe weather in our area through the GroupCast system. The GroupCast system will distribute a pre-recorded message for either a tornado watch or tornado warning. The tornado watch and warning statements will be sent on the basis of a similar alert issued by the National Weather Service.
The resident’s caller ID will indicate the City of Bowling Green Police Department. It is not necessary to contact the Police Department or City Hall upon receiving the pre-recorded alert. The message will contain all of the pertinent information.
