The Cheyenne/Laramie County Emergency Management  Agency will test it's outdoor warning siren system on Friday.

The system will be tested at 10 a.m. in Pine Bluffs and at 12 noon in Cheyenne and surrounding towns. The sirens will sound for about 1-3 minutes.

Emergency Management is reminding people the sirens are being sounded on Friday only as a test, but in an actual emergency people should take cover immediately and tune into a local radio or tv station to get details.

But people shouldn't call 9-1-1 or emergency officials because that will tie up phone lines that may be needed for that are needed for emergency operations, according to the agency
