Please note that cities do perform a monthly siren test to ensure all sirens are functioning. The entire system is tested at one p.m. on the first Saturday of each month unless severe weather is imminent.
When the sirens are heard, go inside and tune in to local media to get more information.
Sirens are an outdoor warning system designed only to alert those who are outside that something dangerous is approaching.
