4-7-2016 Ditches are Deadly

9-28-2016   EAS Test

As water begins flowing in San Juan County irrigation ditches, children and adults may be tempted to jump in.
Most
of the ditches in our community are mud lined and since the annual
clean out of sediment, may be deeper then they apprear. The purpose of
these waterways is to transport irrigation water to crops and gardens,
not for recreational activities such as swimming or inertubing.
Aztec, NM – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a mandatory nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) on Wednesday, September 28, at 12:20 p.m. (2:20 p.m. EDT) to verify the delivery and broadcast, and assess the readiness for distribution of the national level test message.
