Emergency Audible Alert System

The City of Sikeston has installed a City Wide Emergency Alert System. This system is to audibly alert the citizens of Sikeston who may be outdoors when the National Weather Service indicates a tornado by radar or a tornado has been spotted and confirmed by DPS personnel. This alert system is also designed be utilized for other emergency situations as it is capable of transmitting verbal directions.

Although the sirens may be heard indoors, this system is not intended to alert people indoors during a warning. It is highly recommended that each residence, business, school, and church purchase weather alert radios that are automatically activated during severe weather occurrences.

The Sikeston Department of Public Safety conducts tests of the City Wide Emergency Alert System on a monthly basis. This monthly test is conducted automatically by the units.  This testing does not require an audible alert to the public.

IF THE SIRENS SOUND DURING INCLEMENT WEATHER, RESIDENTS SHOULD SEEK SHELTER.

 

THERE IS NO ALL CLEAR SIGNAL OR SOUND WHEN THE WARNING HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
