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

  • seek shelter;  

  • 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.
