Storm sirens to be tested again today at noon

ENID, Okla. — Emergency officials will be testing storm sirens again at noon today after failures were noted during testing on Monday, according to Mike Honigsberg, certified director of Enid/Garfield County Emergency Management.

We normally test our outdoor warning system the first Monday of each month," Honigsberg said. "We attempted to set them off yesterday and only 1 worked."

He said if sirens fail again during the noon test officials will continue working and testing the system throughout the afternoon.

"If you hear the sirens go off in your area several times today, don’t worry, we are making sure that they are working properly," he said in an email sent out from the emergency management office.

There is no chance of severe weather today in northwest Oklahoma, but Honigsberg said there is a chance this weekend and emergency officials want to make sure all systems are functional.
