TV District Upgrades Emergency Alert System
TV Customers Are Urged to Re-Scan Their Box Sets
MOHAVE COUNTY – WECOM, the Mohave County Television service provider, has recently completed equipment upgrades to the county’s Emergency Alert System (EAS). “This equipment upgrade was much needed; unfortunately, some of the older digital TV’s may need to be re-scanned if some channels or program information is missing or not accurate,” Supervisor Johnson said.
Mohave County’s television district was created in 1983 and remains the only one of its kind in Arizona. Its existence enables the upkeep of various TV towers scattered across the rural county to boost the needed signals emanating from Phoenix TV stations. The infrastructure also provides an emergency alert system in order to broadcast weather updates, AMBER alerts, evacuation notices and other emergency messages.
If customers need help re-scanning their TVs or have any other general questions about the TV District, they can call the Mohave County Manager’s Office at 928-753-0729 or visit: https://mohave.gov/ContentPage.aspx?id=571&cid=1400
