The Town of Erie and Mountain View Fire Protection District (MVFPD) have partnered to provide an outdoor warning notification siren for MVFPD's Station 6 located at Erie Parkway and Bonanza Drive in the Grandview neighborhood of Erie. The siren matches others currently in operation throughout Boulder County and augments the siren located on 111th Street in Lafayette, which services southwestern Erie. Coordination and testing of the county-wide network of outdoor sirens is managed by the Boulder Office of Emergency Management (BOEM). Activation of the sirens is controlled through the Boulder County Communications Center, which dispatches all emergency communications for the Town of Erie.
BOEM, MVFPD and the Town of Erie would like to remind the public that outdoor sirens are tested the first Monday of the month, April through September, at 10:00 am and 7:00 pm. During monthly tests, the alert tone will sound for one minute.
Please note that during an all-hazard warning, such as a tornado warning, the siren's alert tone will sound for three minutes. The public is reminded that outdoor warning sirens are designed to alert those outdoors to seek shelter immediately and to listen to local news radio or television for essential emergency information. Outdoor sirens are not intended to alert those indoors.
