As a public service announcement, LFC wants to let everyone in Lake County, Ohio know that there will be a siren test on Wednesday, January 13th at 11:00 am.
Here is the link to the Lake County website that provides information on the County’s emergency alert system.
Excerpts from the website:
Lake County has installed an emergency alert outdoor sirens system to alert citizens of possible dangers such as chemical emergencies, natural and man-made disasters, and national security issues.
The sirens are tested at 11:00 A.M. on the second Wednesday in January, April, July and October.
Sirens will be sounded three times, and each three-minute sounding will be separated by a 30-second break. You also may be warned by loud speakers used by fire and police departments. When you hear the Emergency Siren follow these directions calmly-but immediately:
- Go indoors, close all doors and windows.
- Tune to local emergency information stations. Follow broadcast information.
- DO NOT call 911. Such calls could hinder response activities.
- Stay tuned to your radio or TV for further information.
