Emergency Siren Test Schedule

In conjunction with St. Joseph County Central Dispatch, Sturgis Dispatch and local Emergency Agencies, the emergency sirens shall be tested on the first Saturday of each month during the months of April thru October.

The test will occur at 12:05 pm, unless there is a heavy load of emergency calls in the dispatch center. The test will occur as soon after emergency traffic clears and will last approximately three minutes. The test is designed to allow citizens of the communities the opportunity to hear the siren and become familiar with them so that in an actual weather emergency, there will be no confusion as to what the sounding of the siren means.

In an actual Severe Weather situation, citizens should take cover in a basement or low area and monitor local radio stations on a portable radio for further instructions or the all clear signal.

For more information on Tornado safety and weather awareness, contact St. Joseph County Emergency Management Coordinator, Captain Jim Barnes at 269.467.9045 extension 233.
