This goes against my usual life motto of "If you hear a siren, RUN". But, today, if you hear a siren, it's probably OK to just sit (or stand) there. The Quincy Fire Department is planning to test tornado sirens today.

Testing will be done periodically throughout the day and will be done by close of business. They have promised if the weather turns out bad today (not likely), they'll postpone the tests. As for me, I'll probably be running down the street screaming like a pig on fire. But, as I said, that's my life motto...when in doubt, RUN!

If you have any questions or concerns, give Fire Chief Joe Henning a shout at 228-4459.
