On Monday, June 6, the outdoor siren system will be tested. Sirens will sound in Boulder, Erie, Lafayette, and Lyons. A silent test will be conducted in Eldorado Springs, Jamestown, Louisville, and Superior. The test will occur twice at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
The outdoor emergency sirens system warns community members about weather related emergencies, and depending on programming, hazardous materials and wildfires. Sirens are meant to reach people that are outside, not indoors.
