What does it mean when the sirens are activated in West Fargo?

Sirens are tested at a variety of times to ensure they are functioning properly:

  • Noon Monday through Friday in West Fargo
  • 1 p.m. first Wednesday of every month in the West Fargo, Fargo and Moorhead communities
  • Sirens are also tested once each quarter. The date of the quarterly test is announced in The Forum and West Fargo Pioneer. 

If the sirens are activated in West Fargo, at other times than these, please check your local news and radio stations for emergency messages. The sirens are not used only for tornadoes, but also used to alert the public of other types of severe weather emergencies and other types of dangerous conditions that may occur.
