LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56/WKYT) – Lexington Emergency Management is testing its network of outdoor warning sirens on Wednesday, Sept. 8.

The sirens will be tested at 10 a.m.

Officials said if you live near a park or golf course, expect to hear the outdoor siren sound a series of chimes followed by a voice announcement, “This is a test.”

Keep in mind if you hear the sirens, there is no real emergency, it’s just a test. Officials ask you do not call 911.
