Dont they normally use these things as tornado warnings and the like, you should of probably hid in the cellar or bath tub or something, i dont know really, in Australia they use them for alerting the local volunteer fire brigade, at least where i was anyway.
If you are not used to hearing those warnings than your probably not in that great of a danger even if they do go off.

Have you found out why the siren went off in the first place? The only thing that my town uses them for is tornado warnings, but we also know if they go off with no tornado then something is wrong and we are supposed to turn to our local channel. You need to find out what the protocol is when the siren goes off in your town.
