Winnsboro Independent School District

City to Begin Testing Emergency Sirens


Tuesday March 7, 2017

We are coming in the the time of year that we have to keep an eye on the sky.  In the past few years we have had some close calls with tornados.  With that being said, the Winnsboro Police Department will begin conducting weekly tests of the emergency sirens.  These tests will begin at noon on Thursday, March 9.  We will repeat the test each Thursday at noon throughout the year.  Should we have inclement weather such as a severe thunderstorms during the testing time, we will cancel the test and reschedule.  Please note that during a test, the sirens will cycle one time.  During an actual emergency, we will cycle them three or more times.  Certainly, if you have any questions or concerns, please call the Police Department at 903-342-3620.  Public safety is our number one priority.  

Thank you,

Chief Andy Chester
