As we are in the midst of our annual severe weather season, we need to remain diligent about threats, preparedness, and protocols in the event Carrollton experiences severe weather. Here is an important reminder about Carrollton’s early warning sirens.
Emergency Warning Sirens:
If you hear a steady tone from the outdoor emergency warning sirens, that means trained observers or radar have sighted a tornado. The City has 26 large, rotating emergency warning sirens that sound when there is immediate danger.
What "To Do" When the Emergency Siren Sounds:
Sirens are tested on the first Wednesday of every month at 1:00 p.m. (weather permitting). For more information about the City of Carrollton’s Emergency Warning System, download our Siren FAQ page. For updated emergency alerts, sign up for Carrollton’s Emergency Twitter feed @CarrolltonEM.
