[ARCHIVED] Emergency Alert Testing Tomorrow (May 31)

Bonneville County Emergency Management will be conducting a test of the emergency alert system sirens throughout Idaho Falls and Ammon on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.  Each siren will sound for no longer than 30 seconds.

This is ONLY a test. There is no need to call emergency services with this activation. In the event the emergency alert sirens are used in a real event, you should tune in to your local news source for information and instructions regarding the disaster and/or emergency that may be occurring.

The sirens are an outdoor warning system intended to prompt those who may not be near a radio, television or other news source during a real emergency to seek out the reason(s) for the siren activation.

For additional information contact Tom Lenderink, Director, Office of Emergency Management, Bonneville County Emergency Management at (208) 529-1223 or [email protected].
