Weather sirens, Citizen’s Alert System test set for August 2
The audible test of the severe weather warning system will sound at 9 a.m. Wednesday. Sirens will sound for about three minutes.
They are tested using the wail alert tone once every three months. The test will be canceled in the event of a legitimate severe weather threat.
“We all know that severe weather can strike quickly, especially during our hot, humid summers,” Director of Hall County Emergency Management Zach Brackett said. “By taking steps to prepare before it strikes, you can ensure that you and your family stay safe. I encourage all Hall County residents to sign up for our Citizen’s Alert System in order to receive potentially life-saving notifications about severe weather in a timely fashion.”
