County warning sirens to be tested today

NATCHEZ — The new outdoor Emergency warning siren system will be tested at 11 a.m. today.

The new warning sirens have been placed in the Broadmore, Cloverdale, Foster Mound and Kingston areas, Adams County Emergency Management Agency Director Stan Owens said.

The sirens can be activated for tornadoes, hazardous material releases or other emergencies.

After today’s test, a total of 11 sirens will be tested the first Wednesday of each month to ensure proper operation and to allow the public to become accustomed to the sirens.

When sirens are heard at times other than scheduled testing, Owens recommends residents take shelter immediately in a sound structure or low-lying ditch, avoid taking shelter in cars and tune into a local radio or TV station for updates.

Owens said residents should not call 911 during siren tests.
