Tornado and Emergency Awareness

There are five sirens located within the City of Madison that have been activated using two different signals and two at Hanover College. Township Fire Departments may have limited siren notification abilities; contact them in advance for information.

* The first signal:

Long, steady siren. When you hear this steady siren, it means the National Weather Service has issued a tornado or severe thunderstorm warning. Take cover immediately! Tune to local cable TV or radio.

* The second signal:

High / low wail. When you hear this fast wail, it indicates some type of unusual emergency has occurred, such as a hazardous chemical spill, etc. Go indoors. Tune to local cable TV or radio. Await instructions.
