Siren Testing October 30 at NASA's Glenn Research Center
CLEVELAND --The outdoor mass notification and public address system at NASA's Glenn Research Center will be tested on Saturday, Oct. 30 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

During this time the seven sirens at Glenn will be turned on and off individually during the course of the day. There will be different types of tones activated which will have either a "whoop" sound or that of an air horn at varying levels and lengths of time. The prerecorded voice message also will be tested and may be heard.

The testing is to identify whether any repairs are needed.

While the warning system is meant to alert center employees in the event of an emergency, the sounds may be audible in the neighborhoods surrounding the center.
