Severe weather strikes without regard to man made boundaries, so it's important for emergency personnel to work together. Washington County Sheriff Jerry Dunbar say his agency uses cell phones to keep in contact with other emergency entities. He says that can present a problem if a cell tower is damaged, or the system is overwhelmed. He says law enforcement agencies do have a preferred channel that can override non emergency cell phones. He says they only use it if it's absolutely necessary.
