Countywide siren system test this Saturday

News Journal

A test of the Clinton County tornado siren system will take place at noon this Saturday, July 13. The test is necessary to ensure system operational capability after technical issues prevented the July 6 test.

The test is to ensure all radio controllers are transmitting to county sirens when activated by either the National Weather System (automated) or manually by the Wilmington Police Department.

Clinton County Emergency Management Agency is asking residents to help spread the word regarding the upcoming test.

Monthly tornado siren tests are normally conducted at noon on the first Saturday of each month

If you don’t hear your community siren activated during this test, please report it to your local township trustee or council member. Tornado sirens are owned by their communities and notifications of malfunctioning sirens will enable local officials to conduct service or repairs as necessary.
