Severe Weather Warning System

With the severe weather season upon us, it is important to understand the warning siren system. The St. Louis County Office of Emergency Management is responsible for the maintenance and repair of over 200 outdoor warning sirens located throughout the County. At 11:00a.m., on the first Monday of every month, a countywide siren test is performed. If the weather is unstable on the test date, the test will be canceled.

To report a siren that does not sound during the test or that malfunctioned, contact the Office of Emergency Management at (314) 628-5400. A siren technician will follow-up on every siren complaint.
