Cobb County, in the U.S. state of Georgia, maintains a system of 74 sirens, comprised mostly of Whelen Vortex and WPS-2810 sirens, with a small amount of Federal Signal 2001-SRN units. It is tested on the first Wednesday of the month at noon in 3 minutes of alert. Additionally, the city of Smyrna and Kennesaw State University maintain separate systems of their own, both of which test with the county. There was formerly a system of older sirens, mainly Tbolts and SD-10s, as well as STH-10s, but a majority have been removed. The only remaining old sirens are in Smyrna, in addition to one in marietta.
