[ARCHIVED] Outdoor Warning System (Sirens) Testing This Week

Public Service 2

BISMARCK, N.D. – The Bismarck-Burleigh Outdoor Warning System update is being finalized this week. Beginning Monday, February 1, 2021 and continuing through Friday, February 5, 2021, a technician with Federal Signal will be visiting each of the 24-siren sites to ensure the warning systems are receiving the signal properly for activation. Individual sirens will be sounded for about one second as the technician checks each of them.

If you hear a brief siren “blip,” throughout the week of February 1-5, do not be alarmed. In the event of an emergency, all sirens would sound simultaneously for 3-minutes, similar to the monthly test.

If you have any questions, please contact Gary Stockert with Emergency Management at 701-222-6727 or email gstockert@bismarcknd.gov.
