If you hear it, fear it

The Dept. of Energy will conduct its monthly test of the Oak Ridge emergency warning system on Wednesday May 4.
Sirens will be tested between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m, for three to five minutes. The sirens are located in the vicinity of the East Tennessee Technology Park, Y-12 National Security Complex, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

According information distributed by DOE, “In the event of an actual emergency, the sirens will be sounded. When citizens hear the sirens, they should go inside, close all windows and ventilation systems, and listen to radio or television for public health and safety-related information.”
