Is it a test? I live in the neighboring county...4 miles from Delaware county. There are no sirens here.

There are no 'air raid sirens' any more.

I was just about to get in my car to head that way to run an errand.

What's up now?

They stopped closest to me, but some are still going off about a mile a way. Not sure if a test...which is quite strange for a Sunday morning. A few neighbors got out of their houses to look around and chat.

I know they have 'air raid' sirens around here and I am not even in Penn. They are not on now, but I heard them a few months ago.

They all stopped now, but it is a little unsettling to say the least. At least no one else is reporting this, so its probably a test.

In Denver, they're used for tornado warnings, but I haven't heard of any heavy weather in the area mentioned here.

Re: Air raid sirens blaring north of Philly!
Same thing happened this past week in a east side suburb of Detroit.

On Wednesday it went off at 12:15p.m. Then on Thursday the siren blared 7 different times throughout the day along with them shouting at us over the loud speaker "this is only a test"... The sound is so loud my ears rang for some time after the siren ended and my dogs whined during the alert.

I called the township office to ask what the problem was with the siren and I was told "it malfunctioned on Sunday and we have to do testing. There's nothing to worry about"

This isn't the first time they've done this with the EAS since the "national emergency alert" back in November. They did it the day before that four separate times, and when I called to find out the problem then I was given the same answer I was given a few days ago.

I have lived here 15 years and every Saturday this siren goes off at 1 p.m. Suddenly after all these years the day before the national alert and since then it "malfuctions" and they randomly blare this thing and shout over the loud system "this is only a test".

I don't know what to think of the sudden random alerts, but it certainly seems like it's being used for either a sound cannon or possibly conditioning?

Perhaps the EAS you're describing is the same thing they're doing here? I wonder how many other cities are experiencing these random emergency alerts...my best friend lives in a suburb of Phoenix and has none. I wonder why it seems only certain areas are targets...? wtf

Re: Air raid sirens blaring north of Philly!
Once they ran a test at night time and i rushed down into the city and looked around and nothing, then returned home and later found out it was because i was suposed to stay indoors, because of a fire that produced poisenous gasses and smoke some miles away.
bummer

Re: Air raid sirens blaring north of Philly!
I remember when I lived in PA (western), the air raid sirens went off all the time. It is such an eerie sound... but this was 20 years ago, but, it was very common... maybe once a month or so...

I just assumed they used it for fire dept fires and tornadoes, but we lived miles from town and could hear it clear as day.. Just a memory from childhood.

Do they use the sirens for every day stuff like fires?..
I think that's how they would summon their VFD guys to know in case they were out of communique..

just guessing. maybe nothing big.
