Madison County Emergency Management implements new protocols

If you live in Madison County, there are changes being implemented in the way you will now recieve emergency alerts.

Madison County EMA/CSEPP were to begin conducting sound checks of the new outdoor warning sirens this morning at 10 am, but those test were postponed due to unexpected storms. Another test is scheduled for next Thursday, August 31st at 10:00 a.m. 

The sound checks last about 3-5 minutes, and test all sounds of the new sirens in Madison County. Remember these are only tests. There will be no emergency. Tests will not take place if severe weather is expected.

One change is the new outdoor warning sirens will not use voice overs anymore. There will only be warning sounds, and you need to know what each sound means.

The new sirens will have 3 sounds: a test tone high wail, a tornado warning high wail, and a chemical emergency alternating high/low wail. New sirens will not sound for any watches, nor for thunderstorm warnings any longer.

For more information you can visit Madison County Emergency Managements website or Facebook page.
