Aurora to test emergency sirens Tuesday

The City of Aurora is testing its emergency sirens on Tuesday.

The 11:30 a.m. test will be of 50 cautionary signals throughout Aurora.

Aurora’s Office of Emergency Management warns that the warning should be a three-minute long sound.

The test is a bi-annual one, with the other occurring in March.

Aurora says the purpose of the sirens is to provide notice of an emergency situation, such as a tornado warning or hazardous-material spill. All tones coming from the sirens should be heeded as a take shelter and seek information. In an emergency, an all-clear would come from one of the numerous avenues the city uses to communicate information, such as social media.
