Sirens To Be Tested Saturday

The Douglas County Emergency Management Agency will be sounding the sirens two to three times on Saturday to make sure they are working as Omaha begins to head into severe weather season.

The first siren will sound at 10 a.m., the second at 10:30 a.m. and if a third test is needed, it is set for 11 a.m.

The testing will be visual testing, meaning that a volunteer will be stationed at almost every siren in the county to check and make sure everything is operating up to standards.

There will be another sounding March 27th at approximately 10 a.m. as part of the National Weather Service Severe Weather Awareness Week.

Routine monthly testing of the Outdoor Warning Siren System will also take place at 11 a.m. on April 3rd, May 1st, June 5th, July 3rd, August 7th, September 4th and October 2nd.
