Hamilton County Wireless Emergency Alert Test Scheduled for 9 a.m. on Wednesday, September 4

Hamilton County, OHIO – Hamilton County Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (EMHSA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will conduct the first county-wide test of the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) system on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 at 9 a.m. EDT. A test message reading: “THIS IS A TEST of the Hamilton County Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action required.” will be sent to cell phones in Hamilton County to assess the county’s readiness to alert the public when an emergency is in progress. A backup test date is scheduled for September 10, 2019 at 9 a.m. EDT.

Many members of the public will receive the WEA test message on their cell phones. Specifically, beginning at 9 a.m. EDT, cell towers will broadcast the WEA test for approximately 30 minutes. During this time, WEA-compatible wireless phones that are turned on, within range of an active cell tower, and whose wireless provider participates in WEA, should be capable of receiving the test message. The test WEA will appear to the public as a text-like message accompanied by a special tone and vibration, both repeated twice. Because this is just a test message, no action is required when the public receives the message.

Look for New Signage at Amberley Green

Village Administration will be posting new signage at Amberley Green in response to the increasing feedback regarding safety, usage and particularly Dogs Under Control. As use of the greenspace by both residents and guests continues steadily growing, the Village has experienced greater pressure to establish rules.

The new signs are designed to encourage cooperation for all those utilizing Amberley Green, to establish guidelines to ensure safety and cleanliness for all residents and guests, and to avoid the need for restrictions and citations, as well as to maintain the current level of access to the property.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these guidelines and help keep Amberley Green a greenspace we can ALL continue to enjoy!

On Saturday, July 6, teams from Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, Florida and Pennsylvania gathered to join the Clermont County Sheriff’s Honor Guard for opening ceremonies, which included the presentation of colors, and bagpipes, which were played by Steve Watt of Mariemont.

Ceremonies were immediately followed by the presentation of awards honoring fallen officers Sonny Kim of Cincinnati Police Department, and Detective Bill Brewer, of the Clermont County Sheriff’s Department.  Recipients of the awards were Chief Richard Wallace of Amberley Village, who accepted the Sonny Kim Community Service Award, and the entire Clermont County Sheriff’s Office who received the Detective Bill Brewer Award.

I DONUT NEED A REASON TO THANK A COP, INC. Visits with Amberley Village K-9 Creed and Officer Alt

Early in July, Tyler Carach spent some time in Blue Ash, where Officer Andrea Alt and K-9 Creed were in attendance representing Amberley Village during his visit. Tyler is an eleven-year-old boy from Alabama, who began a mission to thank every police officer in America. His non-profit organization, I DONUT NEED A REASON TO THANK A COP, INC., enables Tyler to share donuts and coffee with officers across the country as a way of showing his appreciation for their bravery and service.

In a Facebook post, Carach talks of his experience in Cincinnati, “Spent a fabulous evening (4th) and morning with Officers and Firemen from in and around the Blue Ash, Ohio Area. Such a wonderful group of Officers. I enjoyed playing some tic tac toe and hangman with you all and also checking out your drone and vehicles. I also loved meeting K9 Creed! Keep being ROCK STARS!” And yes, even Creed enjoyed donuts alongside his human colleagues.

Tyler is scheduled to visit Aiken, SC next, and has visited more than 40 states and delivered over 70,000 donuts to police officers since beginning his mission in August of 2016.
