FYI: From the Sac Osage Fire Protection District Board of Directors Meeting, held July 30, 2015:
Tornado Warning: during a warning for Osceola, the sirens will sound for 3 minutes and then be silent for 1 minute. The sirens will sound again and repeat this procedure until the warning is over.
Foley stated: For a tornado warning, "the fire district will be responsible for activating the sirens. A plan is in place for the sheriff's office and/or the City of Osceola to activate the sirens if a volunteer is unavailable."
