Know why the sirens sound
Outdoor warning sirens alert us to chemical spills, severe weather and other outdoor emergencies. When sirens sound, go indoors and turn on a local TV or radio station to find out what the threat is and how to protect yourself.
Do not assume there is no emergency because skies are clear.
Testing of sirens occurs on the first Wednesday of the month at 1 p.m. in Fargo, Dilworth and Moorhead. The City of West Fargo tests its sirens daily at noon.
