Siren Tests on September 7, at 10 a.m.

Madison County EMA/CSEPP will be conducting tests of the New Outdoor Warning Sirens in Madison County. Sound checks are scheduled for September 7th, at 10:00 a.m. The test will last 3-5 minutes and check each tone the new siren is equipped with. These sounds do NOT indicate an emergency and NO action is required of the public. Tests will NOT be conducted if severe weather is expected.
Residents should note these important upcoming changes to the outdoor warning siren system:
• New sirens will *not* have voiceovers after the warning sound
• New sirens will only alert for tornado warnings – sirens will NOT sound for any watches, nor for thunderstorm warnings
• New sirens will use three tones:
o Test tone: a high wail lasting 30 seconds
o Tornado warning: a high wail lasting 60 seconds
o Chemical emergency: an alternating high and low siren lasting 60 seconds

Event Date: September 07  10AM  Location: Throughout Madison County
