|Outdoor Warning Sirens|
Weather Information: Awareness, Preparedness & Safety
Our network of 15 outdoor warning sirens are tested at 12 noon (ET) the first Saturday of each month. The sirens sound for three minutes during these tests. If there is a threat of severe weather, the test is canceled. The sound you will hear during these tests is the same you would hear for a TORNADO WARNING.
A THREE-MINUTE WAIL (rise and fall) TONE indicates that a TORNADO is in the area. You should take shelter immediately and monitor a battery-operated radio or television station that provides Emergency Alerting System (EAS) messages for severe weather conditions.
