Wiregrass Homeland Security Meeting

By  | 

In May, Alabama was given more than $28 million to help prepare for a terrorist attack. Now, State Homeland Security leaders are putting some of that money in area counties.

Area county Homeland Security leaders met Tuesday in Henry County to discuss their plans of action against terrorists’ attacks.

The state hopes to strengthen emergency operation centers.

Dale County would like to install a "Reverse 911" system which could alert people in case of an emergency like a terror attack or tornado.

Houston and surrounding counties don't know how much of the $28 million given to the state will wind up in local hands.
