Everyone should find out what kinds of disasters, both natural and man-made, are most likely to occur where they live, and how they will be notified. In the Village of Barrington, severe weather (winter or summer), tornadoes and localized flooding are currently seen as the most likely disasters for our town. For tornadoes and severe winds, the Village will activate its outdoor emergency sirens. (These sirens are also tested on the first Tuesday of each month, at 10:00 a.m.) To the extent that we are able, we also will utilize our community notification program, website messages, warnings on Village Cable Channel 4, and the community events electronic sign, to broadcast emergency information. Area-wide, the two county emergency management agencies and the National Weather Service also use emergency radio and TV warnings.
