Test sirens prompt calls to Civil Defense

Advertiser Staff

Today's monthly statewide alarm test promoted some people to call state Civil Defense wondering if there was an actual emergency.

"They wanted to know why we're blowing the sirens," said Ray Lovell, spokesman for state Civil Defense. "We figured this might happen with the first test after the earthquake. But we've got to test."
