Outdoor sirens are activated by the Calhoun County Emergency Management Agency only when a tornado warning has been issued for the area. A warning is issued when a tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar in the area. You should immediately seek shelter when you hear an outdoor weather siren in Jacksonville-stating a tornado warning has been issued.
