Thomas Township

OUTDOOR SIRENS – WEATHER / CHEMICAL NOTIFICATION

 

Thomas Township has strategically placed 10 sirens throughout our community. These sirens are to warn citizens when they are OUTSIDE of a tornado WARNING or of a chemical emergency meaning you need to shelter-in-place. The siren sounds are the same.

For a Tornado WARNING you need to seek shelter. For more information click Tornado Safety Information.

For a CHEMICAL EMERGENCY you need to shelter-in-place. Click shelter-in-place for more information.

This mirrors the same system Midland County has been using for several years. The steady siren blast on a rotating pole allows residents to hear this well in all directions. When you hear this siren, seek shelter immediately and monitor the weather conditions or call the Saginaw County / Hemlock Semiconductor bulletin board number at 1-877-653-4133 for more details. These sirens are tested the first Wednesday of every month at noon.

• Tittabawassee Township – the correctional facility’s siren sounds for their monthly test or a live event.
• Hemlock Semiconductor – has some internal sirens to alert their employees of actions they need to take. See their web site at www.hscpoly.com/community-connectionMI to learn more about their sirens and other important facts.
• Richland Township and Swan Creek (Tri-Township) – has the same siren system we have and is tested the same time as ours.
