Siren Warning System

By  | 

Talks continued Tuesday night in Rock County regarding the county wide emergency warning system.

The Rock County's outdoor warning system ad hoc committee met to discuss the effectiveness and reliability of the county's system.

Currently, there are 47 sirens in the county and more than half of that need to be either fixed or replaced, which would cost near $500,000.

Also, about five communities in the county aren't even reached by the sirens. The committee has now decided to present the county with a plan to extend the range of notification and the cost of upgrading the current system.

The committee will meet again on Aug. 20 for further discussion on improving the county's warning system.
