      Don't be alarmed, outdoor warning sirens will sound

      You might hear the loud outdoor warning sirens during an unusual time this week.

      Truman State University and Kirksville and Adair County 911 Center will be testing the Truman Outdoor Warning System.

      Officials will be sounding the alarm system Thursday at 11:15 a.m. This will be only a test and you do not have to take cover.

      If there is inclement weather on Thursday when the sirens are scheduled to be tested, officials will reschedule.

      "Well we had a few issues with them, we were told they've been resolved," said Chief Tom Johnson with Truman State University Police. "I mean they still worked, they just didn't work the way we wanted them to. So supposedly they are fixed and we just want to make sure they're working the way they're supposed to be."

      Keep in mind they normally test the outdoor warning sirens every last Friday of the month, if weather permits.

      If you have any questions, contact the Kirksville and Adair County 911 center at 660-665-5621 or Truman State University Department of Public Safety at 660-785-4176.
