Limerick will be testing it's siren on Monday. It used to be done every first Monday of the month at 2 pm but about 18 months ago PECO changed to twice a year, June and December.

Unfortunately, West Vincent Township has nothing about this test on the website. The Emergency Management Coordinator (the person that would disseminate these notices) in West Vincent receives $17,000 per year for his services. His colleagues in many of the surrounding townships, some of substantially larger populations, receive a salary of $0. That's right, larger townships yet all volunteer.

In West Vincent, notices for Siren Testing? Nope. Alerts for flooding roads? Forget it. Yet in Upper Uwchlan and South Coventry Townships, the EMERGENCY road closures are sent via Text to a cell phone. Remember, this is $17,000 of taxpayer money.

Here is an article on the Siren Test:
