Alarm system should be in place for warnings

This would allow people to learn of hazards much faster

In 40 years this is the first time I can recall a boil water advisory in downtown Hope.

The district sent workers to all the residences to advise them of the boil water notice. This is commendable, but it took many hours, during which time we were unknowingly drinking contaminated water.

In my opinion, there should be an alarm system in place, much like there was in the past, and if it could be connected to TV, radio, and computer, people could be warned of hazards such as this, much faster.
