Emergency Warning Siren Testing Tentatively Scheduled for April 29

The testing of the Town’s emergency warning siren is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, April 29 at noon. The sirens will sound for 30 seconds to one minute. The tests are to ensure the system and procedures work properly during the peak season for severe weather, such as tornadoes and floods.

In weather-related emergencies, the Town will activate the sirens, especially during a tornado warning. If residents hear the sirens any time other than a planned test, they should seek more information and get to safety. Residents are encouraged to review their own emergency preparedness plans and discuss what they would do in the event of a weather-related emergency. To learn more about preparedness, visit or
