Siren Protocol
When you hear a steady tone it means that a tornado has been sighted in Jennings County   OR   the National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for Jennings County. Take cover immediately. Tune to local cable TV or radio stations for further instructions.

There is NO, "ALL CLEAR" signal. Tune to local cable TV or radio stations for information and instructions.

The question so often asked is "When are Outdoor Warning Sirens activated?". Jennings County EMA and North Vernon Fire Department have established a protocol for activation of the siren system.

  1. When a TORNADO WARNING has been issued for Jennings County by the National Weather Service at the Indianapolis office.
  2. When a public safety officer (Police, Fire or EMS) reports SIGHTING a funnel cloud or tornado.
  3. When a trained Sky Warn Spotter has issued a sighting.
When OUTDOOR WARNING SIRENS are activated:
SEEK SHELTER. DO NOT CALL EMERGENCY SERVICES DISPATCH (911) TO ASK WHY THE SIRENS ARE SOUNDING!
