Franklin County outdoor warning siren test canceled for Wednesday


COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Franklin County Emergency Management has announced it will not test the outdoor warning siren system on August 11.

The decision was made due to the possibility of severe weather.

The siren usually sounds at noon on Wednesdays as a test to ensure Franklin County residents will be prepared in case of a real weather emergency.

The county often cancels siren tests in case it needs to sound a real emergency siren during that day.
