County’s emergency sirens set to be tested

HANCOCK COUNTY — At approximately 11 a.m. today, Hamilton County Emergency Management will test 11 of the Vernon Township emergency weather-alert sirens, which were installed as resident protection four years ago.

These are the same sirens heard each Friday, unless the ambient temperature drops below freezing, and are typically activated by Hancock County.

These sirens are equally spaced and cover all of Vernon Township and have the capabilities of being activated from either county 911 Center.

Hamilton County supplies the Vernon Township trustee a list of any deficiencies noted in order to maintain a high level of operational readiness.
