-- Fire dept. to test alarm system starting July 28

ST. JOHNSVILLE -- The St. Johnsville Fire Department will be testing a weather warning system on three consecutive Mondays beginning July 28 at 6:15 p.m. Residents will hear an alarm sound in the village on July 28, Aug. 4 and Aug. 11, followed by a public address message.

St. Johnsville Mayor Bernard Barnes said, "it's just a test to see if the system works. We don't want anyone to become alarmed. It's to help us test our preparedness for an emergency.

With many people living at the RV park at the St. Johnsville Marina during the summer, the village will open the Waste Water Treatment Plant to campers in the event of extreme weather.
