Irving’s Outdoor Warning System sirens are tested on the first Wednesday of every month at 1 p.m. unless the sky is overcast or there is inclement weather in the area. The system is meant to warn residents and visitors who are outdoors only. Those inside buildings or in noisy areas may not be able to hear it. To learn more about the Outdoor Warning System, visit the Emergency Management website.
Know what to do when the city’s outdoor warning sirens are activated during inclement weather.
A steady tone means a tornado warning. Sirens will be activated when there is a threat of a tornado in the area.
