Siren test scheduled for Wednesday

The Chatham Emergency Management Agency will conduct the monthly scheduled test of Chatham County's Emergency Warning Siren System.

The siren test is scheduled for noon Wednesday, but if there's rain or overcast weather, the siren test will be canceled.

During the siren test, Chatham County residents will hear a three-minute emergency tone from the various sirens located throughout the county.  This monthly test is necessary to ensure that the Emergency Warning Siren System is functioning properly.

Questions or comments regarding the test can be directed to Kelly Foster at 912.201.4500 or
