REMINDER to the Citizens of Hansford County
As of February 11, 2016, Hansford County transitioned from the Code Red Emergency Alert System to a system that the Emergency Management Team feels will better serve our residents.
The system, known as the PARIS system, is able to send real-time information that is released by the National Weather Service directly to your cell phone or email. This system is also able to call land lines, but that information may be slightly delayed. Please keep this in mind if you select that option when signing up for the new system.
The PARIS system is free to the residents of Hansford County. All residents are urged to sign up at www.r2beready.com. This will take you to the PARIS home page where you may click on the link that says, “resolve to be ready.” From that point, each resident will create a login profile, and follow the on-screen instructions to begin receiving alerts from Hansford County and the National Weather Service.
Most of the instructions are self-explanatory, however, once you create your login information, there is a short video you may watch to help you sign up.
This new PARIS system allows our residents to customize how they would like to receive their information. Keep in mind that this new system can be used by Hansford County to release not just weather information, but also important information about our community if the need arises. For example, if there were a wild fire and the local fire department deemed it necessary to evacuate a certain group or area, Hansford County could use the new PARIS system to alert residents in the path of the fire.
For residents who do not have internet access, help is available at Hansford County Library in Spearman and Gruver Library, to sign up for this much needed service.
Judge Benny Wilson, the Hansford County Commissioners, and Hansford County Emergency Management Coordinator Jason Varnon, hope this system will provide our citizens with the most up-to-date and quickest information available.

Hansford County remains in shock after learning that David Truitt Johnson, 36, of Spearman, TX, died on County Road 18 west of Rocky Ford, CO at about 5:30 p.m. on September 13, 2010.
David, a pharmacist, and his wife, Sandi, purchased Gordonís Drug in September of 2003. He was very well liked and respected in his community. His wife and their five children, Steven, Carlee, Mattee, Suzee and Dixee, are and will remain in our thoughts and prayers. May God hold them in His arms and heal the sorrow that they feel and may time accomplish what no words can.
Funeral services for David Johnson will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 18, 2010 at the Morse Baptist Church. Graveside services and interment will be at 4 p.m. at Hillcrest Cemetery in McLean, TX, under the direction of Boxwell Brothers Funeral Home of Spearman.
