What is the Tri-County Siren Alarm System?
Emergency managers in Caroline, Talbot and Queen Anne's Counties have realized a need for an additional means of warning our communities of imminent danger or the need to turn on radios, televisions or computers for information. It is hoped that the "Imminent Danger" signal will never be needed; however, it will be available should something occur. The "Warning" signal might be used when a severe weather warning is issued for the area. When the crisis is ended, an "All Clear" signal will be sounded.

Tri-County Siren Alarm System:

Warning:
2 minute steady signal
Turn to your local emergency alert station

Imminent Danger:
2 minute wavering tone (like a fire siren signal – only faster)
Take protective actions

All Clear:
30 second steady tone
Emergency has ended
