Lexington Emergency Management will test its network of outdoor warning sirens TODAY, Wednesday, March 3, 2021, at 10 am.
If you live near a park or golf course, expect to hear the outdoor siren sound a series of chimes followed by a voice announcement, “This is a test.”
This is a regularly scheduled test – THERE IS NO EMERGENCY – THIS IS FOR TESTING PURPOSES ONLY. Please do not call 9-1-1 about the siren test.
Remember: Lexington’s outdoor siren system is designed to alert people who are outdoors. The siren system is not intended to alert persons inside homes, apartments, or office buildings.

This test may be canceled if adverse weather conditions exist.
NOTE: The National Weather Services has POSTPONED the statewide Tornado Drill originally scheduled for today due to adverse weather/flooding conditions around the state. Weather radios, cable, radio and TV stations and other alerting devices will NOT activate. The drill may be rescheduled at a later date.
