Adair outdoor sirens get first test on Friday, March 22, 2013
CM Recurring Event: Adair County Emergency Preparedness Storm Siren tests are at 10amCT, every 1st Monday of every month
By Greg Thomas, Adair Emergency Disaster Director
This Friday, March 22, 2013m at 10amCT, Adair County will be testing the new outdoor warning sirens for the first time. These eight sirens were just completed last week and will normally be tested the first Monday of every month at 10amCT. With the storm season right on us, we wanted to go ahead and test them this week instead of waiting until next month when will start being tested on a regular monthly schedule.
These are outdoor warning sirens and we stress when you hear them to tune into your local media to find out what the situation is. Do not call 911 to find out what is going on because while the sirens are sounding 911 could be handling an emergency call.
The sirens are located in Cane Valley, Holmes Bend, Knifley, Pelleyton, at the Joe Johnson Little League Park, beside the Adair County Board of Education, at the intersection of Hwy 80 and 61 and beside the water tower at Lindsey Wilson College. We would like to thank the individuals and organizations that have allowed us to place these sirens on their property.
The county will still be utilizing our Code Red notification system along with these sirens.
The common purpose for the Outdoor Warning System is to notify the general public that is out of doors of impending dangerous situations or conditions. These conditions or situations are generally weather related but can include Hazardous Chemical Releases or other situations that warrant emergency notification.
