From Licking County Emergency Management Agency Director Sean Grady:

Starting March 1, Licking County tornado sirens will be based on the National Weather Service warning box, letting residents know they are in the immediate path of a possible tornado. The sirens will no longer automatically sound countywide regardless of the warning area.
A countywide warning is still possible, but it would be triggered by county emergency management officials instead of the National Weather Service.

Also, beginning in March, sirens will be tested only on the first Wednesday of each month, at 12:17 p.m to reduce wear and tear on the equipment.
