New Weather Cameras
Ozark Border Electric crews recently assisted Butler County Emergency Management with the installation of weather cameras at three locations. The boom trucks were extended 60 feet in the air as a lineman mounted them on towers. These cameras will help the Poplar Bluff Severe Weather Response Team in spotting potentially dangerous weather. The high-definition cameras can be turned and manipulated to get a better view of incoming threats. Emergency Management Director, Robbie Myers, says, “We can’t stop the tornados or property damage, but we can get warnings out as early as possible and save lives.” Ozark Border has also assisted with installing several warning sirens over the years and are proud to be a part of making our communities safer.
