Second State-Wide Outdoor Siren Test Tonight
Fishers Fire and Emergency Services Encourages Residents to Practice their Plan for Severe Weather

A second test of the outdoor warning sirens will take place tonight at 7:35.  If you notice any problems with your local outdoor warning siren, please report it through the City of Fishers request tracker system .

Fishers Fire and Emergency Services would like to encourage residents to rehearse their plans for serious weather.

  • Go to the lowest interior room of your house that has no windows.  This could be a basement, crawl space, closet or bathroom as examples. Stay away from doors and windows.
  • If you are stuck outdoors, lay down and cover your head in the lowest place you can find such as a ditch or a culvert.  Under a bridge is not a good location.
  • Prior to severe weather, have water, snacks, flashlight, batteries, charged phone, and medicines available to take to your safe place with you.  In the event there is a loss of power, you should be prepared to survive for 48-72 hours without support.
  • Have a plan on how to communicate with loved ones if separated to assure your safety.  This could be a call, social media or a meeting place.
  • Prepare to protect and care for your pets.
  • Purchase a weather alert radio.  Sirens are to alert people that are outside.  Otherwise monitor news outlets and a weather radio. 

Regular weekly outdoor warning siren testing will resume at 11:00 a.m. Friday.
