What should I do when I hear the sirens?

The Outdoor Warning Sirens are meant to warn people that are outside, that an emergency of some type is occurring . Go inside and seek additional information from a weather radio, news or radio stations. Citizens should go to an interior room with no windows on the lowest floor of the building. If you have a NOAA radio, and if possible, keep it with you so that you can listen for the weather watches and warnings for your area. It is important to pre-plan and decide on your meeting locations with your family or business when creating your emergency plan.
