Emergency Warning Sirens Reminder: May 1
Monday, May 1 | 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
via Boulder County
Boulder County and the City of Boulder will run the audible testing of the countywide emergency sirens at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Monday, May 1. The test is the second of the monthly emergency audible siren tests, which take place each year on the first Monday of each month from April through August.
The audible siren tests will occur twice on each testing day, at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., on May 1, June 5, July 3, and August 7.
Siren tests ensure that all systems and procedures are working properly during the season of peak flood danger. The tests also promote public awareness of the warning sirens located throughout Boulder County.
The annual siren testing is a good reminder for residents to sign up for emergency alerts at www.BoCo911alert.com.
Should Boulder County experience severe weather during one of the planned audible tests, the siren tests for that day may be cancelled. For updated information, visit www.BoulderOEM.com.
Residents are encouraged to review their own emergency preparedness plans and discuss what they would do in the event of a flash flood or other emergency. For more information about personal preparedness, visit www.ReadyColorado.com.
