I remember the 95 incident, I was in 8th grade, me and my friends showed up to the bus stop and there was no one there but we were complaining the entire time there, that it smelled like chlorine.

We as landlords went to Newberry when they had that money from the fed to put a plan in place for such emergencies and no one listened, thought we were being extreme, if I lived or worked in Newberry ESPECIALLY I would want to be in the loop thank god for facebook and cell phones.

I guess we could pay Google to use our GPS on our phone to determine our location and mailing addresses tied to home phone numbers and computers within in some radius of an incident; then they would send a text, email, phone call and social media notification of a problem and how to respond.
