Monthly emergency test erroneously sounded real alarm

People who live in communities with emergency sirens are used to hearing those sirens sound as a test at 1 p.m. on the first Wednesday of every month. However, today's siren test in St. Louis County mistakenly gave the impression of a real emergency.

"During the test, one of our operators inadvertently pressed the warning button rather than the test button," said Dewey Johnson, Emergency Support Services Administrator for the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office. "This caused the wrong alert tone to sound. A lot of people likely aren't aware there's a difference between the test tone and the tone for a real emergency, but for those who do know, this may have caused concern, and for that we apologize."

The sirens sounded primarily in Duluth and Proctor, which have emergency warning systems.

OB/GYN specialist Tiffany Negley joins Essentia Health-Duluth Clinic

The Essentia Health-Duluth Clinic is excited to welcome Tiffany Negley, an advanced practice registered nurse and certified nurse practitioner specializing in obstetrics and gynecology.

“I have been interested in women’s health, and births, since nursing school,” said Negley. “While working in the NICU, I found myself listening to mother after mother share their traumatic birth story, and I felt called back to birth and the need to focus on doing better for the women in our communities through prevention and true informed consent. When we genuinely provide excellent whole-person care to mothers, this ripples into how they will care for their children, and we can positively impact not one generation but two.”

Negley received her education from Bethel University in St. Paul and is certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board.

“Caring for my patients is my calling,” said Negley. “I hope they feel seen and safe with me.” – Press release
