Hello, I was wondering about the City of Raleigh's Flood Warning Sirens. Does anyone know when they test?

(when I was working for the company that did the testing..) No set schedule, except it had to be done every 3 months.

Thank you. Can you tell me the next time they will do servicing on the sirens? Thanks

There's the rub; I haven't worked for that company for over 10 years. No contact, no knowledge of their schedule.

If you're close to NCSU Campus, you many be able to hear the one on Avent Ferry Road. at Brigadoon Drive, or maybe the one called Kirkland Drive, #A11, on Smith Reno Road.

While I was doing them I would set off the "Westminster Chimes'

A really fun one was doing it at Apollo Heights Park, just south of Poole Road, at the Community Center, when it was summer & the local kids were there. Couple times they came outside just before I did the full volume test, I told them to hold their ears. BEEEE-DOOO-BEEEE-DOOOO.....

"DO IT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!" :lol: :? :D

Thanks for the response! I go down to Lake Johnston once in a while to boat, and I have seen the siren there. Strange that I haven't heard it go off before. Here are some questions. (sorry if I am asking too much :)) 1. Was there an actual emergency activation once? 2. What sirens did the 115s replace? 3. What number can I call to ask the city about the sirens? I recall seeing a number to call for questions? But I forgot. 4. Do they do voice? What is the testing procedure? Thank you!
P.S. I recorded a SHNPP 2910 today. I will release it sometime.

No voice, and there was no existing system before the 115's.
