“We tested the smallest sirens, from beneath the tree canopy, and from only one location at a time. Ultimately we will broadcast simultaneously from up to five sites from above the tree canopy with larger sirens. Today we obtained data to help us understand what to procure and install,” WFD Chief Curtis Sheets said.

Chief Sheets also added that full implementation will take up to a year.
