When are the sirens tested?
The sirens are tested the first Tuesday of each month at 10 a.m. If tests are required after maintenance there will be notification to the local news agencies, cities Facebook and Twitter accounts and the Aurora Emergency Management Twitter Account. If there is a severe weather threat on a schedule test day the test will be canceled and local media will be notified of the cancellation.

Sirens will not be tested if the outside temperature is 32 degrees or colder.
