If you hear emergency sirens in Brookfield on Friday, do not be alarmed.
The city is planning a test of its emergency siren system on Feb. 8 at noon, weather conditions permitting.
Director of Finance Robert Scott said the upgraded system includes the change in radio frequency used to communicate between siren locations, as mandated by the Federal Communications Commission.
The upgrade also includes a new siren near Brookfield Road and Capitol Drive that improves the warning coverage area on the northwest side of the city.
Scott said the test is expected to last a minute or so.
