Hawkins County danger
If you need help in Hawkins County, there is a danger you might not be able to get it. There are three towers for Hawkins County Police and Emergency services to use for communication, but one of those antennas is not functional and the other two are only partially operational. Two of the towers were hit during the recent rash of bad weather, and insurance will be paying the cost to fix the problems with those, but at a safety committee meeting emergency funds of 8-thousand 6-hundred dollars was requested to fix the tower on Bays Mountain. Emergency officials say this tower could go down at any time. That means if they were in a place that used that tower to communicate with central dispatch, they wouldn’t be able to do so and that could pose danger for the emergency responders, police, and the citizens they are trying to help. It seems that a maintenance agreement was not part of the original contract, which has led to some of the problems, but they do have a contract now for it to be repaired and maintenance to be done to it on a regular basis.
