Tornado Siren Test Today

A note from Rock County Emergency Management:

Once again, testing of the outdoor tornado sirens will resume with a test at 12:05 p.m. on Wednesday, August 5, 2009, with a steady tone of 1-2 minutes.

The steady tone of 3-5 minutes will be the take cover signal that a tornado warning has been issued for Rock County and citizens should immediately take shelter and tune to your local broadcasting stations or weather radio for information.

If residents find the siren located in their area is not working, they should call 758-8440. Remember, siren testing will not be conducted if there is inclement weather within the county.
