Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett and the Knox County Commission have established an emergency notification system in order to help ensure that Knox County residents are alerted of public safety emergencies in our community. The alert system, powered by Federal Signal, is capable of sending alerts via SMS text, email or voice call. Rural Metro will be responsible for sending alerts in emergency situations, which include but are not limited to severe weather, natural disasters, hazmat, etc.
