The Hall County Warning System is tested silently every morning at 9 a.m. At 10 a.m. on the third Wednesday of February, May, August, and November, the sirens will be tested using the "WAIL" alert tone. To avoid confusion, the sirens will not be tested if there is stormy weather or a severe weather watch or warning in Hall County. Other than the time the "WAIL" tests are conducted, the only time the sirens should be activated with sound is when an actual warning is issued.
