Outdoor Warning Sirens
An Emergency Outdoor Warning Siren System is an all-hazards siren system used to warn the general population of potential danger. During an emergency, the sirens may be activated for a set amount of time as determined by your community.
If the sirens are activated - and it is not a monthly siren test - the public should see it as a signal to
tune in to radio or television to get information about
type of emergency and
instructions and recommendations; and
listen to your local media for indications that the emergency is over.
The public should not call 9-1-1 unless they have an actual emergency.
