PAW FIRE DEPARTMENT
The siren will blow 3 minutes continuously
when there is a TORNADO WARNING AS RELAYED
TO US BY LEE COUNTY. However, this is
not to be considered the only way to
be aware of severe weather. Smartphone
apps, S.A.M.E. weather alert systems,
TV & radio are all advisable when
severe weather threatens. Tornados can
develop quickly and without warning,
so please do not rely on one single
source for information. Once again,
we will activate A 3 MINUTE WARNING
SIGNAL when a TORNADO WARNING has been
issued. The following is a short description
of watches & warnings, knowing the
difference between the two can prepare
individuals for the necessary steps
to take when considering the threat
of severe weather:
Watches and warnings issued to the public
are based on different criteria.
Watches are issued by the NOAA's SPC,
and warnings are issued by local offices
of the National Weather Service (NWS).
A WATCH is issued when conditions are
favorable, for example, either for a
severe thunderstorm or tornadoes. It
doesn't mean severe weather is imminent.
WARNINGS mean that severe weather is
imminent and is based on specific criteria
and existing reports received by the
We urge everyone to seek shelter when
the 3 minute siren sounds, or you have
received a warning via other forms of
media. Please designate an area of your
home or business now in preparation.
