Monroe County to test warning sirens Friday

The Monroe County Emergency Management Office will test its outdoor warning sirens June 24th at noon to ensure siren quality. This test is separate from the monthly scheduled test on the first Friday of each month.

The outdoor warning sirens are used to give advance warning to those caught outdoors or driving during a severe weather threat.

Justin Baker, Deputy Director of Monroe County Emergency Management, said in the release that Indiana weather can change quickly, which makes sirens essential for getting everyone to a safe location during a weather threat. 

For any questions, contact the Emergency Management Agency at justinbaker@co.monroe.in.us or at 812-349-2533.
