Tornado Siren Testing Schedule 2022

Kit Carson County Communications Director Shawn Franz has announced today that the Communications Center will be testing the tornado sirens and the CodeRed systems on Tuesday, March 8th, 2022.

Sirens are scheduled to be sounded at the following times and places:

10:00 a.m. — Burlington

10:05 a.m. — Bethune

10:10 a.m. — Stratton

10:15 a.m. — Vona

10:20 a.m. — Seibert

10:25 a.m. — Flagler

10:30 a.m. — Cheyenne Wells

10:35 a.m. — Kit Carson

10:45 a.m ---- Kit Carson and Cheyenne County wide test of the “CodeRed” system.  

Following the initial siren at each location, the all clear will be sounded.

Starting April 12th, 2022 through October 11th, 2022 the all clear sirens will be tested every second Tuesday of the month.  These tests will start at 10:00a.m. and go from Burlington across the county to Flagler, then Cheyenne Wells and the Town of Kit Carson.   

Also if you do not get the CodeRed alerts after we do the test please go to or and click on CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment  and sign up all your phones to receive CodeRed alerts. It will ask you to create an account so you are able to register your phones and address. The reason for the address is the system calls phone numbers based on address as the communications center is able to do specific areas within the county.
