False Alarms

A false alarm of the emergency sirens is possible because of lightning or other events. If you hear the emergency sirens and there is NO emergency information on the Emergency Alerting System (EAS) station, then the alarm is probably false.

If this happens, please contact the local emergency management agency office with any questions..
