BENTONVILLE -- The city will test its storm warning sirens at 1 p.m. Friday.
During the test, or an actual emergency, the sirens will sound twice, according to a news release.
The first sound will be a steady blast for three minutes. This means an imminently dangerous storm is approaching. The second sound will be alternating high/low tones for 45 seconds. This means the weather has passed.
People inside a building might not hear the storm warning sirens and should use a radio, television or weather alert radio as means of monitoring weather conditions. Residents may sign up for alerts through www.bcalert.com.
