    a friend of mine called- they were embarrassed too as the siren going off was an accident.

    I’m local, near Olympia in the Zayante Valley. At 23:07 I heard the Felton Emergency siren go off. I’m a bit embarassed, as I’ve heard tests before, but never the siren. Is this a call to the volunteers, or to alert the community? And if the latter, what is it alerting to? Has the Martin fire changed directions? It was heading SW, away from Felton at last report.
