St. Joseph County Emergency Siren Test
Time & Location
About the Event
St Joseph county tests the “tornado sirens” on the 1 st Thursday of each month at
approximately 11:30 AM. The purpose of these tests is to verify all the sirens are
working. In conjunction with the monthly siren test, R.A.C.E.S. conducts a net. This net
starts after the siren test has completed. The net is on the WB9AGX repeater 147.390,
PL 131.8. Checkins are encouraged. We will ask your location & whether or not you
heard the siren. This information is critical to verify that the sirens can be heard in time
of a tornado.
If you are not able to check into and report siren status on the radio, you can send an
email to KB9ZRV@ARRL.NET, giving your location and whether or not you heard the
siren test, please put “SIREN TEST” in the subject.
