As a part of Severe Weather Awareness Week, the county will not only be testing its outdoor siren system at 10 a.m. today, but the county's emergency notification system, NotifyJoCo, will also be tested. Those messages will be sent via email, text message or by phone, depending upon the options those who have opted in to the system have chosen.
