[ARCHIVED] Storm and Flood Warning Siren Testing November 3, 2014

The Manhattan Fire Department and Riley County Emergency Management will test the Wildcat Creek flood warning sirens during the normal scheduled outdoor warning siren test at 10:30 a.m. November 3, 2014. Residents located along Wildcat Creek will hear a voice advising there is a flood warning, flooding is imminent and they should tune in to local TV and radio stations, as well as other voice messages testing the system capabilities. The testing will last approximately 30 minutes, and the messages will be repeated several times.

There are currently two voice modulator outdoor warning sirens installed along Wildcat Creek. The sirens are located at the public works building at 3131 Anderson Ave. and Firehouse #3 located at 2727 Amherst Ave. A third voice modulator siren will be installed later this year in the 4000 block of Anderson Avenue to complete the Wildcat Creek outdoor warning siren project.

Please contact Deputy Chief Ryan Almes, Manhattan Fire Department, at 785-587-4504 or Riley County Emergency Management Coordinator Laurie Harrison at 785-537-6333 with any questions.
