DENVER — Outdoor sirens sounded in the Mile High City on Wednesday.
The Denver Office of Emergency Management planned to test outdoor warning sirens around Denver at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
The sirens were to also test at Denver International Airport (DIA).
The test was originally scheduled for May 10 but was rescheduled due to inclement weather.
The Denver Office of Emergency Management said residents could expect to hear the siren for at least three minutes.
The test is meant to ensure Denver’s outdoor public siren system is working effectively and there is no need for residents to take action or be alarmed. The outdoor sirens are intended to warn community members of life-threatening weather-related emergencies.
The Denver Office of Emergency Management said spring siren testing time is a a good reminder to review family emergency preparedness plans, kits, and to register for a DenverREADY or DenverLISTO class to increase emergency preparedness.
