Outdoor Severe Weather Sirens

Forsyth County has 22 outdoor severe weather sirens located throughout the county to notify residents that severe weather is in the area. Severe weather sirens are only designed to be heard by individuals outside during severe weather. Residents should have other means of receiving severe weather notification when located inside a structure.

Monthly testing of the audible siren will take place at noon on the first Wednesday of every month, weather permitting. In the event Forsyth County is placed under a tornado warning, the sirens will be activated.
