Outdoor warning sirens to be upgraded and tested on Oct. 28

The city of Brighton is currently upgrading the outdoor warning sirens in order to enhance the software program used to launch the sirens during a tornado. To test the new software, the sirens will sound at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 28, for approximately five minutes. The public is not expected to take any action in conjunction with the testing.
The sirens will be tested again during the normal monthly testing scheduled for the first Wednesday of every month. This will take place at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 3.

The outdoor siren system is used to warn the general population of tornado danger in a short amount of time and to notify residents that an emergency is occurring.
