GAINESVILLE - Hall County plans to conduct an audible test of the severe weather warning system about 10:00 Wednesday morning. The sirens will sound for about three minutes.

The tornado sirens are tested using the wail alert tone once every three months.

Hall County's Warning System is tested silently every morning at 9:00.

Meanwhile, the county will also test the emergency mass notification system Wednesday morning.

The Hall County Citizen's Alert System notifies residents about severe weather, fires, floods, toxic environmental issues and in-process violent crimes within minutes. Messages can be sent to individuals using a variety of contact mechanisms - cell phone, landline, email, text messaging and more.

Citizens listed in the County's 9-1-1 database have been automatically subscribed to alerts by landline, though any individual may self-register, provide additional contact information or opt out. To sign up or learn more, log onto alerts.hallcounty.org.
