Warning Sirens in the Midland Area
A network of 27 outdoor warning sirens serves a geographic area surrounding the industrial area on South Saginaw Road in the City of Midland. Sirens are located throughout the City of Midland, Midland Township, parts of Ingersoll Township, parts of Williams Township (Bay County), and Tittabawassee Township (Saginaw County).
Outdoor warning sirens are activated for Tornado Warnings and Chemical Emergencies. They are given a full test the first Saturday of each month at 12:45 pm and a short "growl' test on other Saturdays at 12:45 pm. The sirens have only one signal type, which is to alert you that an emergency exists and you should move indoors and seek additional information. The two outdoor warning sirens located inside the Dow Facility are tested at 10:55 am on the first monday or every month.
