Today's test of the Fort Worth Outdoor Warning System has been canceled due to overcast skies.

The first Wednesday of each month your neighborhood siren will sound for 90 seconds, the remaining Wednesdays in the month the siren will sound for 15 seconds. Tests may be canceled if severe weather is forecast or current weather conditions may cause confusion as to whether it is a test or an actual activation.  During these weekly siren tests, the Office of Emergency Management recommends residents take the time to review your emergency and communication plans to use during an emergency situation.  This is the time to check on supplies in your emergency kits.  Check that batteries are in good condition.  Update your weather notification apps on your smartphone or tablet. 

As a reminder, the City’s outdoor warning system can be activated for a tornado warning issued by the National Weather Service, the report of a tornado or funnel cloud by a qualified spotter, hail that is one and a half inches or larger in diameter, sustained winds in excess of 70 miles per hour, a state or national emergency, or other incidents determined by an Emergency Management Duty Officer to warrant the siren activation.  In an actual event “SEEK SHELTER AND SEEK INFORMATION”.
