City of Fargo plans Emergency Siren testing next week

FARGO (WDAY) - The city of Fargo plans to test their outdoor warning system throughout next week.

As part of the annual maintenance process, tone testing on individual emergency warning sirens may be heard during the daytime hours Monday, May 15 through Friday, May 19, while crews work on the system. 

The City of Fargo regularly tests sirens on the first Wednesday of the month at 1 p.m. During a scheduled sirens test, no actions are necessary for citizens.

The siren structure is an outdoor warning system; therefore, you may not be able to hear the sirens indoors or during an actual event due to high winds and weather conditions. Cass Fargo Emergency Management recommends signing up for Cass Clay Alerts and having a NOAA All-Hazards Weather Radio with Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) technology to provide dependable indoor warning information.
