It is that time of year when weather can be unpredictable. So with your safety in mind, the City of Bennett conducts testing of outdoor warning devices/ sirens on the first Tuesday of each month at 10:00 AM, between the months of March and November. In the event of severe weather on a scheduled test day, the community may opt to cancel the testing of the outdoor warning devices. For additional information please contact city hall.
For more information of ways that you can prepare for server weather or other emergencies, visit this Red Cross information page.
We do this in partnership with the Cedar County Emergency Management Agency.
