The tornado/severe weather warning sirens are only sounded when a severe weather warning is sent to us by the National Weather Service. The sirens are controlled by the Police or Fire Departments. They are also on a prevention maintenance program to ensure their condition. A monthly test is done on the first Friday of the month. The placement of the alarms is periodically checked to ensure that they can be heard in all parts of the Village. Any questions concerning this alert system may be directed to the Village Hall for referral to the proper authorities.
