Hall County to test severe weather system

Posted: Updated:

On Wednesday, Hall County will conduct an audible test of the severe weather warning system.

At approximately 10 a.m., the sirens will sound for about three minutes.

Tests will not be conducted if there is a severe weather watch or warning in effect for Hall County.

The tornado sirens are tested using the wail alert tone once every three months. Other than these previously announced tests, all sirens should be considered to be an actual tornado warning.

The county will also test their emergency mass notification system.

The system notifies residents about severe weather, fires, floods, toxic environmental issues and in-process violent crimes within minutes. Messages are sent to cell phones, landlines, email, text, fax, pager and more.
