DeSoto Testing Outdoor Warning Siren 1st Wednesday Each Month When Weather Is Clear

Siren Warning Post Revised 031119

DESOTO’S SIREN TO SOUND FIRST WEDNESDAY ON THE MONTH AT 1:45 PM: THIS IS JUST A TEST

The City of DeSoto wants us all to be prepared for severe weather at all times. That's why we will test our Outdoor Warning Siren on the first Wednesday of each month between 1:45-2PM. But we will only carry out this test if the weather is clear so that no one mistakenly thinks there it is an actual emergency!

Our neighboring Best Southwest Partner cities of Cedar Hill, Duncanville and Lancaster will test out their sirens after us at 2PM or later on the same test day. 

And if you really want to be prepared for severe weather season sign up for DeSoto’s CODE RED emergency notification system at www.desototexas.gov/codered

Don't be alarmed...be prepared!
