Emergency Warning System

The safety and protection of the residents of the City of Martin is enhanced with eight emergency warning systems.  These systems let you know about weather-related emergency situations.

The Martin Police Department activates the outdoor emergency warning system.  It is designed to give the residents advanced warning in case of severe weather.  Most of us are familiar with the sound of this warning siren, as it is tested on the last Wednesday of every month at 12:00 p.m.  If you hear these sirens, take cover immediately and utilize the Emergency Broadcast System on your local TV or radio station. This will provide the most up to date information about the threat and let you know when the threat has passed.  Please note that the National Weather Service, and not the Police Department, will give an “all clear” notification.
