Current Events/Updates

Early Warning Sirens Test SATURDAY JULY 1, 2023

The Early Warning Sirens (EWS) will be tested the first Saturday of each month at 12:00pm.

Residents should expect to hear a voice command stating:

·         “This is a test of the Paradise Early Warning Sirens.” 

·         Followed by a 30-second-high low siren. 

·         “This is a test of the Paradise Early Warning Sirens.”

Once the last voice command is played that will conclude that month’s test of the EWS system. 

Testing the EWS allows our team to ensure that the sirens work as intended and meet the specified requirements. It helps identify any defects or deviations and allows us to also measure and evaluate the performance of the system, software, and product.

The green sirens will be the ones activated in the test Saturday. Those sirens include the 5 from June 15th and 4 more:

1. Town Hall

2. Police Department

3. Pentz and Pearson

4. Crestmoor and Rose

5. Gregory and Waggoner

6. Clark and Yellowstone Kelly Memorial Trail

7. Maxwell and Fairview

8. Pentz and Ely

9. Roe and Scottwood
