Delaware County Outdoor Warning Sirens

There are 16 outdoor warning sirens in Delaware County that are activated through a joint partnership between Delaware County Emergency Communications and Delaware County Emergency Management.

During a tornado warning, the sirens operate on a cycle of 3 minutes on followed by 10 minutes off, for the duration of the warning. The sirens will sound countywide for any tornado warning that intersects the Delaware County boundary. Remember the safest place to shelter is in the lowest level of a building away from windows. No “all clear” is issued via sirens, make sure you have at least one method to receive emergency communications while you shelter.
