Testing Outdoor Emergency Warning Sirens

Siren Testing

The Boulder County Office of Emergency Management will test the countywide emergency sirens beginning at 10 a.m. on Mon., May 2, and again at 7 p.m. Testing will repeat again on Jun. 6 and Aug. 1. If Boulder County experiences severe weather during the planned audible tests, the siren tests for that day may be canceled. 

Erie's outdoor warning sirens are located at Station 6 (Erie Parkway and Bonanza Drive in the Grandview neighborhood) and South Erie Station 8 (located in Vista Ridge) thanks to a partnership with Mountain View Fire Rescue. Sirens are meant to reach people that are outside, not indoors. 

The Boulder Office of Emergency Management manages coordination and testing of the countywide network of outdoor sirens. All Boulder County sirens test weekly test throughout the year, using a software program that performs a "silent" test. Boulder County Communications manages the sirens' activation and is responsible for dispatching all emergency communications for the Town of Erie.
