OUTDOOR WARNING SIRENS
When Sirens Sound: Take Cover – Tune In – Take Action
The Outdoor Warning Sirens are intended to alert persons involved in outdoor activities that an emergency situation exists. The Outdoor Warning Sirens may be activated for any emergency situation requiring public warning. Persons hearing the outdoor warning sirens should seek shelter, obtain additional information from local radio, television and NOAA Weather Radio and then take appropriate action for their safety.
During severe weather the Outdoor Warning Sirens are activated for Tornado Warnings issued by the National Weather Service or when a funnel cloud or tornado is observed by a public safety official.
To receive severe weather warnings when indoors we recommend all occupancies have a NOAA Weather Radio with Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME), tone alert and battery backup.
Remember: When Sirens Sound: Take Cover – Tune In – Take Action.
