DURHAM, N.C. — A Wake County disaster is spurring Durham leaders to act. On Thursday, city council members will consider investing in a reverse 911 system.

Through the system, residents are notified by telephone of a crisis or disaster.

Durham City leaders started studying the system after the Apex chemical fire last year.

The system runs $25,000 for six months. If approved, the cost would be split between the city and the county.
