Sirens

The City’s Outdoor Warning System is designed to alert residents and visitors of Topeka about possible danger. The sirens are tested on Mondays at noon with the following exceptions: Holidays, very cold weather, overcast skies or threatening weather. The test lasts approximately 45 seconds and an actual warning signal is 3 minutes.

During the monthly test, the siren emits a single 15 second alert tone, similar to an emergency vehicle siren. In the event of a disaster, the 15 second alert tone will sound repeatedly for 5 minutes.
