Idaho Falls, ID: Bonneville County Emergency Management will be conducting a test of the emergency alert system sirens throughout Idaho Falls and Ammon on Wednesday, Jan. 9 at noon. 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.
