Sulphur Springs Emergency Sirens Will Be Tested September 20

9/20/2022 – Emergency sirens will be tested in Sulphur Springs at noon today by the Sulphur Springs Emergency Management Office.

The test is to gauge the reliability of the emergency warning system and is conducted to find any potential flaws in the system so they can be corrected prior to a real emergency situation. The sirens could be sounded not only for weather warnings such as tornados, which are the most common in the area, but also in case of any emergency that could affect the safety and lives of citizens in Sulphur Springs.

Recent tests have shown the emergency sirens to be a ready source of warning in case of emergencies such as tornados or other threats to safety.

This will only be a test, conducted at 12 p.m. September 20, 2022.

A city emergency siren are tested regularly to ensure they are working in case they are needed to warn anyone nearby that action is needed due to an emergency situation
