Walker Co. automated emergency calling system does not work as planned

Posted: Updated:

WALKER CO, GA (WRCB) - As storms rolled through on Monday, Walker County's new automated emergency calling system did not work as planned, but county leaders believe they've found a fix.

Resource coordinator Larry Brooks confirmed to Channel 3 some residents did not receive the alert about a tornado warning until after the warning had expired.

Brooks says there was a problem with communication between the system's mapping software the contact database.

He says the problem is fixed and the system should function properly.
