The Chatham Emergency Management Agency will perform its monthly test of Chatham County's Emergency Warning Siren System on Wednesday.

The test will take place at noon Wednesday. Chatham County residents will hear a three-minute emergency tone from sirens throughout the county.

The test is necessary to ensure that the Emergency Warning Siren System is functioning properly.

If there is rain or overcast weather, the siren test will be canceled.
