Teton County plans to test its outdoor warning sirens Tuesday.

Sirens at Teton Village, Teton Pines, Wilson, downtown Jackson, Gregory Lane, Adams Canyon and Hoback Junction will sound to ensure they’re operational for emergencies.

Anyone outdoors in these areas can expect to hear a few short bursts from the sirens. They usually can’t be heard inside of buildings.

Typically, Emergency Management Coordinator Rich Ochs said, hearing a three-minute wail from the sirens means citizens should tune in to local radio, all-hazards weather radio, online local media (Hint: JHNewsAndGuide.com and the Hole Scroll app) or your phone for an alert about what’s going on.
