Severe Weather Reminder
As we are in the midst of our annual severe weather season, we need to remain diligent about the threat of severe weather, and be prepared in the event it happens in Carrollton. 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:
· DO NOT attempt to pick up children at schools or other locations where they would be safe.
· There is no "all clear" signal.
Sirens are tested on the first Wednesday of every month at 1:00 p.m. (Weather Permitting). Click here for more information about the City of Carrollton’s Emergency Warning System.
