Q: Why are the outdoor warning sirens sounded?
A: The sirens are sounded for only a few reasons.
They are tested on the first Wednesday of every month at 1:00 p.m. There are two siren blasts, a warble and a steady tone, lasting one minute in between them.
The sirens are sounded with a warbling tone when the fire department is called out.
And, the sirens are sounded with a long steady tone whenever there is a tornado warning. In this instance, they sound until the warning is over and danger has passed.
Q: Do you give presentations about severe weather?
A: Yes, we are available to give presentations on Severe Winter Weather, Severe Thunderstorms, Storm Spotting, and/or Tornadoes.
