Warning Siren Testing Slated

Posted on Jan 14, 2013



During the week of January 14, the Amarillo/Potter/Randall Office of Emergency Management will be completing an outdoor warning siren assessment/upgrade/testing for all 90 sirens located within Amarillo, Potter and Randall counties. As part of the testing, citizens may hear individual sirens go off and on for short periods of time as staff working on site at the siren ensures everything is in proper working order.

Should severe weather or other threatening weather be near the area, staff will cease testing so as to not create confusion of whether it is a real activation or just testing of the warning system. As always, we appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience as we continue to maintain our warning systems in proper and reliable working order for our community.
