When are the outdoor warning sirens tested?

Audible testing will occur on the first Wednesday of the month if conditions are favorable. The test will be an audible test and generally lasts about 30 seconds. Testing only occurs when weather conditions are “clear.” This means we will never test the sirens if the weather conditions outside could be confused for a real siren activation.
