On the evening of June 20, 2021, the threat of severe weather resulted in a Tornado Warning for the area from the National Weather Service (NWS). The Lyons Township Area Communications Center (LTACC) did not initiate the alert system for those communities for which LTACC controls siren activation. LTACC conducted a review to determine why the sirens did not sound. LTACC is confident that the siren activation policy will be effectively applied going forward. Please see the LTACC statement at the link here.
