If you hear a siren don't be alarmed

Posted: Updated:

WEST RICHLAND, Wash.—You may hear sirens the week of February 14th but don't be alarmed.

Energy Northwest and Emergency Response officials from Benton and Franklin Counties will begin testing alert sirens on Monday in the area of North Richland and Horn Rapids Housing Development.

Testing will take place between 10:00am and 2:00pm.  An Energy Northwest Representative says you do not need to respond to the sirens, they are only a test.

Testing should wrap up by March 11th.
