“Today we were finally able to test our warning sirens. The last test we conducted was in November 2013. With as much snow/ice and the freezing weather we didn’t want to chance testing the sirens and then having ice cause a mechanical malfunction of a siren,” said Dave Clippert, Sedalia-Pettis County Emergency Management Agency director.
The following sirens did not work today:
Highway 65 and Duke Road
Timber Ridge Drive and Ridgeview Drive (Hunters Ridge)
Monsees Lake Estates
“These sirens have been called into Blue Valley Public Service and they will have them inspected and repaired, normally within 3-5 business days,” he noted.
There is no severe weather forecast at this time.
All other sirens activated, he added.
