GAINESVILLE - Hall County E911 plans its quarterly audible test of the severe weather warning system this Wednesday.<br />
The test is scheduled for 10 a.m., and sirens will sound for approximately three minutes.<br />
Sound 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. <br />
Hall County's Warning System is tested silently every morning at 9 a.m.<br />
Hall County officials will also test the emergency mass notification system Wednesday morning. The Hall County Citizen's Alert System notifies residents about severe weather, fires, floods, toxic environmental issues and in-process violent crimes within minutes.
