Ottawa County Emergency Management will coordinate the test this month utilizing individual jurisdiction activation tones which will sound in sequence throughout the county.
This means that instead of sounding all county sirens simultaneously, several sirens in one area are activated, then the following area, until all sirens in the county are tested. 
This could mean that some communities may hear the sirens slightly after the noon hour as each area is activated in sequence.
This is the first audible siren test in 2014. Monthly tests will occur through November, on the first Friday of each month.
The next scheduled test will occur on Friday, May 2.
