Siren Testing

The sirens are tested the 1st Saturday of the month from March through November at 1:00 p.m. If a large fire is in progress, the test may be delayed for up to 15 minutes. The test lasts approximately 4 minutes and begins with a wavering tone, followed by a solid blast tone.

Besides the test, the sirens are activated for tornado warnings and/or 70 miles per hour winds or higher only. For a tornado or 70 mph winds or greater warning, the siren will give a solid one minute or three minute (depending on siren model) blast every 10 minutes until warning has expired.

On March 24th, as a part of the state recognized Severe Weather Awareness Week, the state scheduled a voluntary statewide tornado drill for 1:00 pm. This was reported on Michigan.gov here.
