Branson Outdoor Warning Siren testing January 12 at 10:00 a.m.

Branson Fire Rescue will perform a regularly scheduled monthly test of the Outdoor Warning Siren System at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 12, 2022. As part of this test, the sirens will sound several times over a 20 minute time period for additional service and maintenance testing.

As a reminder, the sirens are normally tested each month on the second Wednesday for a three-minute cycle.  

The City of Branson maintains 23 Outdoor Warning Sirens across the community. These sirens are designed to warn people outdoors of a variety of emergencies that might include severe thunderstorms, flooding or tornadoes. When activated, residents are encouraged to seek shelter in a sturdy building and then seek information as to what the emergency might be by listening to an NOAA Weather Radio or watching local broadcasts television stations.
