Fannin County EMA has been assisting The City of McCaysville by issuing water advisories through the NIXLE Emergency Alert System. Saturday at the request of McCaysville Water officials, we requested a potable water tanker through GEMA (Georgia Emergency Management Agency). The tanker was provided by Georgia Forestry Commission and was delivered on Sunday afternoon around 4:00PM.
Fannin County CERT members are manning the tanker which is stationed at the city park in McCaysville (181 E. Market St.) There is no charge for the water but residents must bring their own containers. Water will be available from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM daily until no longer needed.
