The City’s Office of Emergency Management will conduct a full three-minute test of its Outdoor Warning System at noon Wednesday, Jan. 6. The full test, conducted at least once per year, allows the system to work through one complete warning cycle as would be done during times of emergency. The rest of the year, Emergency Management conducts a 30-second test the first Wednesday of each month.
As a reminder, residents are not expected to hear these sirens from inside a house or building. Their primary purpose is to move people indoors and allow them to seek shelter and more information.
The test will be rescheduled to Wednesday, Feb. 3 if there is inclement weather or overcast skies in the area Jan. 6 during the time of the scheduled test.
