What do the Sandusky County Warning Sirens Indicate?

Monthly Test – 3 Minute Steady Tone, this ensures sirens will work when needed they are tested at noon on the first Saturday of every month. If severe weather is in the area the siren test will be cancelled.

Tornado Warning - 3 Minute Steady Tone which means TAKE COVER and TUNE to LOCAL NEWS MEDIA for further information and updates.

Sandusky County does not issue an all clear. Sirens are sounded when credible reports from spotters are received and/or NWS issues a tornado warning for Sandusky County.

All Other Emergencies (attack, chemical, etc…) - 3 minute wavering or warbling sound which means TAKE COVER and TUNE to LOCAL NEWS MEDIA for information and instructions. There will be no all clear.
