The City received an emergency management grant through Wayne County to install additional early warning sirens throughout the Grosse Pointes. These sirens are activated to warn our communities of weather emergencies, such as severe storms or tornadoes.
The siren will be activated on the first Saturday of each month for testing purposes. Each test will be conducted at 1:00 p.m. and will last approximately one minute.
