Sullivan Co. to test emergency tones Tuesday

Local News

When emergency tones sound in Sullivan County Tuesday, it is only a test.

Hoosier Energy and the Sullivan County Emergency Management Agency will be performing the annual test of county emergency tones as part of a statewide test with the National Weather Service.

Sullivan County Emergency sirens include a severe weather siren, a hazardous material high/low tone, an air-horn pulse used in the instance of a dam breach and a wale high-wind warning sound for Turtle Creek Reservoir. Each of these tones will be activated Tuesday.

The test is scheduled to take place between 10 and 10:30 a.m.

Citizens should tune in to local media outlets, including the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, in the event of an actual emergency.
