This is a monthly test of the Petersburg (Pike County) Weather and HAZMAT Warning System that takes place the first Friday of the month. The test includes Voice annocements and a, Alert, & Wail/Attack signals. Alert is used primarily for severe weather warnings while Wail/Attack signals a HAZMAT (Hazardous Material) situation. I am not quite sure why they would test a HAZMAT signal but, I guess they think the two nearby, large power generating plants might have something to do with the cause. All of Petersburg's sirens are controlled by the Pike County EMA.

This Whelen WPS-2750 is located on Alford Road by an elementary school. Petersburg has three Whelen WPS-2750s running on ESC-864 controls. The alert tone on this siren is around the similar pitch of a newer Whelen.

Luckily I was off today to go and record a siren. Since Pike county tests the first Friday of the month, I decided to go and record the third Whelen in Petersburg. There is also a Sentry 16V1T-B near by. The other Sentry sirens tested shortly later while the Whelens tested first. The Sentrys are not heard in this video since I cut this video short, but I did make a recording of it and I plan to post it soon. I also tried something different. I used both audio from both my cameras and combined it into one.
