Test of Outdoor Warning Sirens


The City of Lakewood will conduct a test of its outdoor siren system at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 14, 2014.


All 26 sirens in the system will be activated with a long wail, followed by a voice test message over the public address portion of the system. The test will then conclude with one long siren wail. The annual test of the outdoor siren system is required to ensure that all 26 siren sites in Lakewood are functioning correctly.
