Chatham County Warning Siren System
The Chatham County Warning Siren System is used to notify residents of danger within their community. Once heard, residents should go inside and listen to their radio or television for any advisories for their area.
Currently there are 59 sirens located throughout the County that, if activated, warn residents to take shelter immediately and to monitor their weather radios, commercial radios and televisions.
Sirens are only meant to be heard outside and are designed to warn residents outside of their homes to seek immediate shelter.
Our sirens are tested regularly to ensure that the Emergency Warning Siren System is functioning properly. We conduct silent tests several times a week and conduct a full audible test on the first Wednesday of every month at 12-Noon.
