Marion County Siren Check Net

On the first Friday of each month, Marion County tests the warning siren system at 11:00 A.M. Marion County ARES and Marion County Amateur Radio Severe Weather groups run a 'Siren Check Net' on the 146.700 MHz repeater to gather siren information from participating stations. This information is forwarded to the Marion County EOC by way of a local RACES officer.
