LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)-- If you hear a siren Wednesday morning, don't panic.

Emergency Management is testing its network of outdoor warning sirens at 10 a.m. If you live near a park or golf course, expect to hear the outdoor siren sound a series of chimes followed by a voice announcement “This is a test.”

This is a regularly scheduled test which occurs on the first Wednesday of each month when severe weather is NOT expected. THERE IS NO EMERGENCY - THIS IS FOR TESTING PURPOSES ONLY.  

Please do not call 9-1-1 for information about the siren test.  

Please note: The warning siren located in downtown Lexington is inactive due to maintenance issues. There will be no test of the downtown emergency warning siren.
