Emergency Warning/Notificationm- Residents may have seen that warning sirens are installed at several locations in our city. These sirens are not fully operational at this time. The technology used to activate the sirens is outdated and not reliable. Our staff is currently working with local contractors to find a solution that ensures reliable activation by our personnel in the event of an emergency. In the event of severe weather, residents should rely on local news, weather radios, mobile apps and other warning devices and products that are available. We hope to have a solution in the near future to expand our capabilities to warn of threats to our city. In the event that warning sirens are activated, residents should visually survey the elements and tune in to local news and or radio for verification of a possible threat
