Reading to test air raid siren atop City Hall on Friday

READING, Pa. - Consider yourself warned: Reading is set to sound the alarm.

The city announced Tuesday that it will conduct a test of its air raid siren atop Reading City Hall at 8:30 a.m. Friday.

Mayor Wally Scott requested the test be done because he wants to know what does and doesn't work at City Hall, according to his spokeswoman.

The mayor wanted to sound the siren during the city's 9/11 remembrance ceremony on September 11, but it wasn't working at the time.
