1/6/2018 - The Berrien County Emergency Management Office conducted a January test of the B-Warn! system at about 1PM today. The B-WARN! system is meant to augment Emergency Alert System messages and other alerting systems, such as sirens. The system is designed to allow users to sign up for the alerts they would like to receive and for which areas within Berrien County they would be interested in.
B-WARN! users can choose to opt out of system testing, however; we believe it is important to test the system regularly and ensure it is functioning well. For example, today we learned that the text to speech options can be improved. So, we will be working on improving that for February's test!
