Emergency Siren

Can you hear the siren ringing? 

Every first Tuesday of the month at 10 AM there is a mandatory emergency test. So, if you hear the emergency siren sound, don’t panic!

Outdoor Warning Sirens

An Emergency Outdoor Warning Siren System is an all-hazards siren system used to warn the general population of potential danger. During an emergency, the sirens may be activated for a set amount of time as determined by your community.


Most systems use two siren tones.

  •       Alert: A single tone signifying an emergency alert. This signal may be used to inform the community of an emergency or disaster, including a severe storm, tornado warning (not a tornado watch), earthquake, chemical hazard/hazardous material incident, extreme winds, or biological hazard.
  •        Attack: An up-and-down, rising and falling tone to signify there is a homeland security or attack emergency. This signal would be used if community officials were notified by federal and/or state government officials of an actual or impending attack on the local community.
  •       All Clear: Many communities do not use an All Clear signal. Tune in to your local news agencies and listen for notification from city officials regarding the emergency.


Sirens are tested on the  First Tuesdays of each month at 10 AM.
