The Findlay Fire Protection District will test their sirens on July 11.

The test will begin at 10 a.m., weather permitting. Assistant Chief Leonard Logan stated that the sirens would not be tested if the weather were in a watch or warning state as not to upset the community.

The test will be a multiple test of different tones. The purpose is to pick out a tome in case a disaster happens and the need to evacuate the Findlay community becomes necessary.

“The reason for the test is because Findlay had a train derailment on Memorial Day weekend. Fortunately, there was no hazard spill or any other emergency involved, but the department wants to keep one step ahead in case this should happen again,” Logan commented.

If a situation should arise, the Findlay Fire Department will try to evacuate the town by sounding the appropriate siren. Mr. Logan added that “If we have to evacuate, please help others and also pass the word around, and drive carefully.”

The Findlay Department would like for all concerned to mark the test on their calendar, July 11, 10 a.m., so as not to become alarmed when the siren sounds.
