Pittsburg reminds residents about it tornado siren policy

PITTSBURG, Kan. – The City of Pittsburg would like to remind residents about its policy for activating tornado sirens.

The first step towards sounding the sirens requires a tornado warning issued by the National Weather Service.

From there, the city may activate the sirens if officials believe the danger is imminent.

The city of Pittsburg recommends following FEMA’s recommended guidelines for that situation, that you do not go out into the storm, do not get out into your vehicles and travel anywhere, hunker in place in the building or home that you’re in, go to the lowest ground level that you have and go to the most center room that you have.”

 – Benjamin Henderson, Pittsburg Deputy Chief of Police
