Storm siren testing 1st Tuesday of each month

 The outdoor warning system (storm sirens) will be tested at noon on the first Tuesday of each month. No testing will be conducted when extreme cold and/or heavy icing might damage the equipment. Tests will be postponed whenever there is severe weather (or potential severe weather) occurring in the local area, and testing the sirens might cause confusion as to whether the activation is real event. If the test is cancelled on the 1st Tuesday of each month, it will typically be postponed one week.
