Siren & Safe Site Locations

The City has voice warning sirens that announce emergencies when they arise, so there will be no confusion as to what a siren signal actually means. Instead of 1 centrally located siren, there are 4 announcement systems distributed on the Island. This system is tested at noon on the 1st Wednesday each month. This test will be foregone if severe weather conditions occur at the time of the test.
