Testing the Outdoor Warning System
The Outdoor Warning System in Little Elm is tested on the first Wednesday of every month at 1 p.m. The test consists of stationing a fire department apparatus at each siren location to verify that the audible and mechanical functions are in working order. A steady tone is used for siren testing. If inclement weather is possible the test may be postponed until the next month or a growl test may be performed instead. A growl test has a very low audible sound that citizens will most likely not hear.
