Siren Testing This Week

In News by Wes Willis, Deputy Director OEM

Siren Testing to be Conducted Wednesday and Thursday (3/23-3/24)
OEM will be working with contractors while they add 15 new sirens to our existing network. This may require sounding sirens individually in certain areas on 3/23/16 and 3/24/16 (Wednesday and Thursday).

The Frankfort-Franklin County Office of Emergency Management will moving into the final phase of bringing 15 new outdoor warning sirens online. Beginning Wednesday, March 23rd, technicians from Federal Signal will be in Frankfort to finish the process of adding our new sirens into our existing network. This will involve activating new sirens individually for short durations. Most of the testing will be using a lower volume mode (growl) and may not be noticeable. We believe testing will be completed by Thursday, March 24th. For updates on the test visit us at our website or check our Facebook and Twitter pages.
