Fire Alarm Siren/Severe Weather Siren- residents may notice the sirens going off at noon on the first Monday of each month. This is a testing of the city’s severe weather siren system. To distinguish the severe weather siren from the fire alarm siren, listen for the following: the fire alarm siren will cycle once (ring for 1 minute) - the severe weather siren will sound the same as the fire alarm but will cycle 3 times (ring for 1 minute, stop for 30 seconds, ring for 1 minute, stop for 30 seconds, ring for 1 minute). The fire alarm is only used to page the firemen; the severe weather siren is used to alert residents so they can prepare for bad weather.
