The City will be conducting audible testing of the emergency response sirens at 10:00 am on the first Wednesday of every month. The alarms will sound and then announce that it is a test.
The tests will not happen if there is possibility of bad weather to avoid confusion.
The fire department will only activate the tornado sirens if an immediate threat exists to the City or South Walton County. Tornado warnings normally occur with little or no warning. If you hear the tornado sirens during a storm take shelter immediately.
Citizens are also encouraged to sign up for the Everbridge Public Notification System on the Walton County Government website.(https://member.everbridge.net/index/453003085611716#/login) This system allows you to receive emergency warning messages via cell phone, email, and home phone.
