TORNADO SIRENS – SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE 

The City of Urbana Fire Department has scheduled maintenance for all outdoor tornado warning sirens located in the city on August 9, 2022, through August 11, 2022. On these dates, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., each siren will be inspected for functionality.  

Each inspection will include a short (5 – 10 seconds) audible test which will make the sirens activate. Please note this is scheduled maintenance and not an emergency.

In the case of unfavorable weather, the maintenance will be canceled and rescheduled for another time. An updated press release will be published if this should occur.
