Don’t be surprised if you hear sirens tomorrow afternoon. Remember – we test our emergency sirens every year on Election Day at noon. It helps us prepare for emergencies and hopefully reminds everyone to vote.
There is a siren located on the roof of Fire Station 1 at the City Center (351 W. Center St.) and there are three located in the Riverbottoms area at about 2750 N., 3800 N., and 5200 N. along University Avenue.
The city conducts this annual test so the public can experience the operation of the system before a real emergency. In the event of a real emergency, you are advised to turn to local emergency broadcast stations, KSL-AM 1160 OR KBYU-FM 89.1 for further information.
