Weather Emergencies

‚ÄčThe Oakland County Early Weather Warning Program is designed to provide timely notification of severe weather conditions to persons and agencies. The goal of the program is to reduce personal injuries and property damage as a result of severe weather.

The Outdoor Warning Siren System is an outdoor warning device that provides a county wide three minute steady tone alert. The sirens are activated for Tornado Warnings or Severe Thunderstorm Warnings with 70 mph winds or greater.
Outdoor Warning Siren TESTING is scheduled to take place the 1st Saturday of every month from March to November with a few exceptions.
