Hall County will test its outdoor weather siren at 10 a.m. today.
The siren will sound for about three minutes. The audible test is performed every three months. The system is tested silently every day at 9 a.m.
Also today, the Hall County Citizen’s Alert mass notification system will be tested. Those who have signed up to receive notifications should get a test message today. Those interested in signing up should visit www.hallcountyfire.org. The system notifies residents about severe weather, fires, floods and violent crimes. Users can receive messages via cellphone, land line, email and fax.
The Times also offers a notification system through text message and email. Sign up at www.gainesvilletimes.com/timestogo. The system will automatically send notifications about severe weather, and users can also select other types of news they’d like to receive through the service.
