Siren tests announced for this Oct. 10

Taylor County Emergency Management will be conducting live tests of the outdoor warning sirens along the coastal communities of Steinhatchee, Keaton Beach and Dekle Beach Thursday, Oct. 10, between 10-11 a.m.

During the test, sirens will be turned on for one wail siren broadcast, which may last up to three minutes.

“This is part of the routine maintenance Emergency Management will conduct on the second Thursday of each month between 10 and 11 a.m.,” Steve Spradley said.

“To prevent unintended alarm, we will not conduct an audible test if there is inclement weather at the time of the pre-scheduled Thursday test,” Spradley noted.
