Emergency Notification System Update

Update Dec. 13, 2023:
10:52 AM – You may hear a brief siren for testing purposes only.
The city’s new Community Warning Siren is being installed at the corner of Main and Rolfe. Please use caution when traveling in the area.
While the sirens will be set today, they’re still a few weeks away from being operational.

Update Dec. 1, 2023

A new site has been selected for the replacement siren and it will be located near the intersection of Rolfe and Main Street.

Miss Dig requests have been initiated by the installer so we expect to see progress soon.


Update Sept. 13, 2023:  The city has an operational emergency siren that will sound in the event of future need.  There is still work on going to add a second siren at a new location in the near future.

As a reminder, the fire department will test the emergency alert siren the first Saturday of the month.


On Friday, August 11, 2023, the city’s siren that is used to notify residents of severe weather was damaged and taken out of service by the tornado.

We have been in contact with West Shore, the company that services this equipment, to have it repaired but please be aware that until the equipment is repaired and in the event of future severe weather there is NO siren in the city limits to sound an alarm at this time.

Residents are urged to download a local news centers app as many of them feature an alert system.  Residents are also highly encouraged to join Smart 911 an alert system utilized county wide that can send direct messages via text or email when there is severe weather requiring a warning.

Information about how to sign up for Smart 911, and a more detailed description of its many benefits, can be found on the city’s website:

Updates will be shared as they become available.
