Emergency Siren Testing
Outdoor Warning Sirens to Sound for Maintenance Work
Beginning September 10th and running through the end of the month, maintenance work will be performed on some of the Oakland County Outdoor Warning Sirens. Once the work is completed at each siren, it will be tested for approximately 30 seconds to ensure that it is in proper working order; your citizens will hear the normal siren sound, but just for a short burst.
This should not be confused with an actual activation of the outdoor warning sirens which lasts for 3 minutes. If your citizens hear the sirens for the full 3 minute activation, they should seek shelter immediately and listen to a radio or television for more information.
