TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - No need for alarm, it was just a test.

The Shawnee County Emergency Management Team tested the outdoor warning sirens from a backup location Monday.

They also tested their "secondary, or attack mode" which they say is standard practice the first Monday of the month.

Dave Sterbenz tells 13 News most people never notice the test since the sound pitch goes up and down as the siren rotates.
