SIREN SIGNALS

·       WEATHER OR MAJOR EMERGENCY ALERT - A steady tone for three minutes indicates:

o       Severe weather situations – the confirmed sighting of a funnel cloud or tornado in the area.  Take shelter immediately and listen to radio and television stations for further updates and advice. 

o       At other times – a major emergency such as hazardous material spill.  Stay indoors and wait for further information via in-person visit, telephone, loudspeaker, radio, or television.

 

·        DAMAGING WIND ALERT – A wavering tone for three minutes indicates severe weather with damaging winds. Take shelter and listen to radio and television stations.  

·        FIRE ALERT- A distinctive wavering high-low tone from the siren located at the Fire Station serves as a backup system – supplementing firemen’s pagers.  Residents walking or driving should be prepared to yield to firefighters in their personal cars or emergency vehicles.   

 

 

 

 

 

 Sirens are routinely tested on the second Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. with all tones sounded for approximately one minute each.
