26 Warning Sirens
Coweta County has installed a system of 18 warning sirens across the county.
The City of Newnan has a system of eight (8) existing sirens that are coordinated with the county system.
The sirens are designed to issue tornado warnings to people outdoors sounding both a siren and a verbal message urging you to seek shelter. The sirens can be heard up to 1.25 miles. They are installed near schools, parks and other locations where large groups might gather outside.
Citizens are urged to also get weather radios and/or warning apps for their smart devices for use inside homes, businesses and vehicles.
It is important to note that not all sirens will sound each time, only those in endangered areas.
The sirens will be tested the first Wednesday of each month at 11AM, weather permitting.
