Early Warning System Siren Test Continues

Early-Warning-SirenThe San Luis Obispo County Office of Emergency Services will continue to test the county's 131 Early Warning System sirens today.

In what as known as a growl test, each siren will be tested for a few seconds each.

The Early Warning System sirens were installed as part of a requirement to operate the Diablo Canyon Power Plant, but they can be used for any major local emergency.

Emergency officials say it is only a test and the public does not need to take action.
