Storm Season Reminders

The City operates an outside storm siren system throughout the community to alert citizens of severe weather which may be tracking to the Jenks area. These sirens are initially sounded for a three minute period as an initial alert. The wailing may be repeated. Upon hearing a siren warning please access any available news outlet for further information. It is always advisable to have a battery-operated radio and flashlight available.

Citizen Actions In the Event of a Public Emergency

In the event of a public emergency it may be necessary for individual citizens to take certain actions in order to protect life, limb, and/or property. Your local emergency officials will not ask you to leave your home or location unless there is a valid reason. Do not try and second-guess the validity of their request.

The most effective recovery from a public emergency is working together as a community.
