IDAHO FALLS, Idaho: Bonneville County Emergency Management will be conducting a test of the emergency alert system sirens throughout Idaho Falls and Ammon today, Wednesday, Nov. 26 at 10 a.m. Each siren will sound for no longer than 30 seconds.
This is ONLY a test. There is no need to call emergency services with this activation. In the event the emergency alert sirens are used in a real event, you should tune in to your local news source for information and instructions regarding the disaster and/or emergency that may be occurring.
The sirens are an outdoor warning system intended to prompt those who may not be near a radio, television or other news source during a real emergency to seek out the reason(s) for the siren activation.
