County and emergency management officials throughout Greater Cincinnati
have adopted the same criteria for when outdoor warning sirens are
sounded which includes:
- Testing conducted at Noon on the first Wednesday of each month.
- When a tornado WARNING is
issued for Clermont County or for any adjacent county when Clermont County may also be affected.
- As a notification tool for telling
people to seek official information about an emergency from commercial media outlets or NOAA “all-hazards” radio.
that sirens are primarily for notification of those located outdoors
away from a radio or television. Every household should have a NOAA
“all-hazards” radio that can be sounded by the National Weather Service
or emergency officials for notification of severe weather and other
emergencies. New Richmond residents who need assistance programming a
NOAA radio they have purchased can contact the fire and EMS department
at 513-553-2117 who may be able to assist them.
