National Severe Weather Preparedness week will be observed across South Dakota April 21-25, 2014.
It’s a time to focus attention to the severe weather that can be experienced during the spring and summer months.
In Presho the local fire department will offer test sirens on Thursday, April 24 to allow residents to hear the difference between a fire siren and a tornado siren. The test will start at 10:00 am.
10:30 am, a test of the fire siren will be issued. The siren goes up in volume, then down, and then up again, nine times to allow local firemen to hear the siren and get to the firehall.
10:40 am, a test of the tornado siren will be issued. The tornado siren is a steady sound and will run for two minutes to allow residents the chance to take shelter. The tornado siren is only actived when a tornado is in the immediate area and threatening the city of Presho.
The sirens are being tested by the fire department as a public service to the community of Presho.
