Understanding Campbell County Outdoor Warning System

The current outdoor warning system is comprised of a mesh of newer and older technology siren heads with updated system controllers. We have both Mechanical (capable of tones only) and newer Electronics (capable of both tone and voice messages).

The placement of our system is aimed towards the outdoor recreational population of the county. This includes the riverfront, golf courses and parks throughout the county.

The outdoor warning system will be activated for a Tornado Warning issues by the National Weather Service, EMA may activate the system for a localized event like a hazmat release, or other emergency where the system will optimize warnings to the public.

&nbsp

I hear the sirens! Now what?

Once the system is activated seek shelter and tune to your local media outlet or NOAA All HAZARD RADIO. Identify the Hazard and follow your personal safety plan. Please do not call 911 unless it is an actual emergency.

SIRENS TESTED 1st WEDNESDAY of the MONTH..  Unless Severe weather is expected

 

I do not live close to a siren. What do I do?

A NOAA All Hazards Radio is an inexpensive way to receive timely weather information. These units cost less than $30.00 are available in most department stores. The new units with SAME technology can be programmed to go off for events you are interested in. The old days of the radio opening up for every event are a thing of the past. you can now set the radio up for just your county and just a single event like a tornado warning or flood warning. Every residence should have one. Do not rely on the rely on the outdoor warning system to alert you.

 

I hear a siren but it's sunny out.

The outdoor warning system may be activated for emergencies other then severe weather but it is rare. Our office performs maintenance on the system from time to time. Out technicians will bump the siren to check it is operational. The mechanical siren we will perform a 1 min test and the Electronics we try to use the Chimes function to test the units. On the first Wednesday of the month we will perform a full system test if the temperature is above freezing and a partial system test if below freezing (mechanical sirens only).

Please remember that Hamilton County and Kenton County also have a siren systems and you may hear sirens from those counties if the wind is just right.
