Monthly Siren Tests

Print
At noon on the first Thursday of every month, the St. Charles Parish Emergency Operations Center performs a one-minute test of the parish's outdoor warning sirens. The sirens are owned and maintained by the Waterford 3 nuclear facility.

Waterford 3 has allowed St. Charles Parish to use the sirens for other emergency situations, including tornado warnings, hurricane events and any other event that poses an immediate and severe threat to the community.
 
If you are a St. Charles Parish resident and believe that one of the sirens is not functioning correctly, please contact the EOC at (985) 783-5050. Please remember that the sirens are outdoor warning sirens and may not be heard indoors in all situations or in areas that are geographically far from the sirens.
