Warning sirens & emergency notifications will be tested June 7

Published on June 02, 2023

Warning sirens and the LookoutAlert emergency notification system will be tested on Wednesday, June 7.

The City of Lakewood will conduct a test of its outdoor siren system beginning at 11 a.m. The test should conclude by 11:30 a.m. 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.

If at the time of the siren test, weather conditions are such that a tornado watch or warning may be issued for the Lakewood area, the siren test will be canceled.

Also beginning at 11 a.m. on June 7, the LookoutAlert Regional Emergency Notification System will be tested and will take several hours to complete. Through LookoutAlert, emergency responders are able to provide emergency and public safety messages to residents via text, email or voice message.
