The city of Grand Forks will test its emergency warning sirens the first Wednesday of each month throughout the year, according to a news release.

The sirens will sound at 1 p.m. throughout the city.

Before, the tests were conducted from May through October, but because cold weather can adversely affect the batteries that power the sirens, the test was expanded to include every month.

The emergency sirens are used to warn residents who are outside to seek immediate shelter because of impending severe weather conditions.
