Special Siren To Be Heard Tuesday Morning

While the first Tuesday of every month is a great time to check tornado sirens, if you're in Taylorville you will hear a different sound along with the normal tornado sirens.  Christian County Emergency Management Agency DIrector Jeff Stoner informed Regional Radio News that after the normal tornado sirens go off for 3 minutes at 10 AM Tuesday morning, you will also hear the Homeland Security Siren. This siren is checked once per year and with April being severe weather preparedness month, it's a good time to check that one as well.


This is also a good time to go over your escape routes, and emergency plans with your family to make sure that everyone knows where to go when there is an emergency or if a situation may arise. Make sure you have an emergency kit in your safe area and that kids know what to do and where to go if there is a tornado, fire, or other emergencies.
