Outdoor warning siren tests scheduled for noon Saturday

Can spring be far behind the start of the monthly Washtenaw County Emergency Operations Center testing of the 55 outdoor warning sirens across the county?

On Saturday, March 2 at noon, the emergency sirens are expected to be tested by the county, and these tests begin in March and end in September.

If there is a threat of severe weather on the day of a test, it will be cancelled, according to information about the spring testing.

Except for scheduled testing, the sirens will be activated for the following emergencies:

1.) The National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning.

2.) A severe thunderstorm has been detected with damaging winds in excess of 70 m.p.h.

3.) A hazardous materials accident requires immediate protective action by the public.

4.) An attack on the United States is imminent, underway or has recently occurred.

Warning siren activation is a signal to members of the public to immediately go indoors and monitor local Emergency Alert System media outlets for official information.

Washtenaw County’s emergency broadcasters are: WEMU 89.1 FM, WWWW 102.9 FM, WQKL 107.1 FM, WTKA 1050 AM, and WLBY 1290 AM.
