Hall County to test weather sirens, Citizens' Alert System this Wednesday

By AccessWDUN Staff
Hall County Central Communications/E9-1-1 will conduct a regular audible test of the severe weather warning system this coming Wednesday, May 3.
 
At approximately 9 a.m. the sirens will sound for about three minutes, according to an announcement from Hall County Government officials.

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. 

Hall County's Warning System is tested silently every Wednesday at 10 a.m.
 
Meanwhile, Hall County officials continue to urge citizens to sign up for the Hall County Citizen's Alert System, which will also be tested Wednesday morning.  The Citizen's Alert System notifies residents about severe weather, fires, floods, toxic environmental issues and other important topics within minutes. Messages can be sent to individuals using a variety of contact mechanisms - cell phone, landline, email, text messaging and more - ensuring that Hall County residents receive life-saving emergency information and important public service announcements in minutes. Citizens listed in the County's 9-1-1 database have been automatically subscribed to alerts by landline, though any individual may self-register, provide additional contact information or opt out.
 
To sign up or learn more, log onto alerts.hallcounty.org.
