Warning Sirens

The county warning sirens are tested monthly during April thru October. The tests are held on the first Friday at noon. People can submit reports via amateur radio or by phone. A report consists of your name, the major intersection location of the siren, the city the siren is located in, whether it is rotating and if the siren is sounding loudly.
