BENTONVILLE -- The city will test its storm warning sirens at 1 p.m. Friday, weather permitting, according to a news release.

During the test or an actual emergency, the sirens will sound twice. The first will be a steady blast for 3 minutes. This means an imminently dangerous storm is approaching and citizens should take protective shelter.

The second sound will be alternating high/low tones which will last 45 seconds. This means the weather has passed, according to the release.

The warning system is designed to alert people who are outside. People inside of 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. You may sign up for alerts through to get alerts to your cell phone, home phone, text message and email, the release stated.
