Outdoor emergency siren testing in Lexington Wednesday

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Lexington Emergency Management will test its network of outdoor warning sirens on Wednesday at 10 am.

They say people who live near a park or golf course, expect to hear the outdoor siren sound a series of chimes followed by a voice announcement “This is a test.”

This is a regularly scheduled test – THERE IS NO EMERGENCY – THIS IS FOR TESTING PURPOSES ONLY.

Officials say do not call 9-1-1 about the siren test.

Lexington’s outdoor siren system is designed to alert people who are outdoors.

The siren system is not intended to alert persons inside homes, apartments or office buildings.
