Flood Siren Testing – Tuesday 14th November 2023

9th November 2023 News

The Environment Agency will sound the Flood Warning Siren in Walsden on Tuesday 14 November 2023 between 10:45am – 11:00am. Please note that it is only the Walsden siren being tested at this time.

Following recent testing of the Flood Siren in Walsden, work to repair the siren needed to be carried out. This means that a further test is now required. The siren in Walsden, will sound for two minutes. When the siren is sounded on this day it is a test. If a siren is sounded at any other time, it should be treated seriously and you should take action.

If the Environment Agency is in incident mode or poor weather is forecast on the day, the test will be postponed until Thursday 16 November.

We run the siren test to check audibility of these key flood resilience measures and use the occasion to raise awareness of flood risk with affected communities. We will have staff present on the day near the siren to provide flood advice and answer any questions. For more information or if you have any questions about the siren testing, please contact us at YorkshireFloodResilience@environment-agency.gov.uk.
