The outdoor emergency warning sirens in Nelsonville and The Plains will be tested today at noon with a one minute sounding.
The sirens are tested at noon on the first Wednesday of every month. However, the monthly test will be cancelled if severe weather is threatening.
Conditions that can trigger activation include Tornado or Severe Thunderstorm Warnings, an enemy or terrorist attack – or other public safety emergency – such as a hazardous materials incident and civil disturbance.
When the sirens are sounded for an actual emergency, they’ll be activated for five minutes.
Don’t call 911 when you hear them – that could cause an overload for dispatchers communicating with emergency personnel. Instead, go to a safe location and tune your radio to Power 105 – or to WATH at 970 AM or 97.1 FM.
