About 9:30 a.m. Monday, the Santa Barbara County Office of Emergency Management and Santa Barbara County Fire Department will conduct an annual full siren test of the Emergency Warning and Notification System at the Venoco Ellwood Onshore Facility, 7979 Hollister Ave. in Goleta.

The test is expected to last no longer than one minute and will verify that the siren is functioning properly and is audible to citizens within a designated distance from the facility.

This is only a test, and no action is required.
