Christian County Emergency Management has a weather alert program called SWIFT911 (SWIFT911 Information PDF).  If you have a smartphone, this App is the best option for you to receive alerts as it will notify you wherever you may be in the county.  These programs will also alert you to other emergencies that may be happening in the area and from other agencies such as fire, police, etc.
If you do not have a smartphone, you may still enroll in the program by going to their website portal to register:  http://www.christiancountymo.gov/swiftreach.html, You will receive phone messages when there is approaching severe weather or other alerts.
There are other great weather alert Apps available to download to your smartphone, and weather radios for purchase. Occasionally we are asked if the City of Fremont Hills has storm sirens, and that answer is that we do not.  The primary function of storm sirens is to alert people who are outside, and they are considered old technology (cities who have them tend not to replace them when they are in disrepair and in need of replacement).
There’s no time like the present to get your storm-ready plan in place.
