It’s time for the quarterly siren test. This is the time of year when the tourists get the strange looks on their faces when the sirens go off. Details follow….
On Saturday August 22 at noon and again 30 minutes later, the San Luis Obispo County Early Warning System Sirens will be tested. The sirens will sound for three to five minutes each time, but you are not required to do anything. PG&E and the County Office of Emergency Services are only testing the sirens to make sure they are working properly in case of any major local emergency.
