Monthly Siren Test - Monday, October 2nd at 11:45 am

The State’s monthly test of the Statewide Outdoor Warning Siren System using the Attention Alert Signal “steady tone,” coordinated with the test of the Live Audio Broadcast segment of the Emergency Alert System, is scheduled for Monday, October 2, 2017 at 11:45 a.m.

The siren test is a steady one-minute tone on all sirens. The warning sirens are used to alert the public to any emergency that may pose a threat to life or property. The sound of the sirens is a cue for residents to turn on a radio or television for information and instruction for an impending emergency. Besides natural hazards, the Emergency Alert System could be used for terrorist incidents or acts of war.
