The civil defense sirens are going off here. In Wichita that meant tornado.

Here apparently it just... summons the volunteer fire department? Maybe? No one is quite sure. Seriously: people here are okay with not knowing what the civil is defending against?

@gamehawk In some places, they used to have a monthly practice / test, so it could be that, too.

@lnxw48a1 Yeah, Wichita does that every Monday at noon (in good weather, which it's raining here) but I was hearing vehicular sirens as well so I'm guessing fire/rescue.
