[ARCHIVED] Walsh Road Siren Test

Police banner

The semi-annual Walsh Road siren test will take place on April 5th, 2021, at 9am.

Why do we have the Walsh Road Siren?

In the event of a fire or flood, there is a warning siren installed at the Cal Water facility on Reservoir Road.  The siren can be activated by the Menlo Park Fire Protection District or the Atherton Police Department to advise residents that an evacuation should take place.

Residents in the Walsh Road neighborhood will hear the following warning sirens:

Tone 1 - Continuous siren = Fire

Tone 2 - Intermittent siren = Dam Breach/Flood

We test the siren twice a year to ensure that it is functioning properly.
