City Will Replace Failing Tornado Siren

The city will purchase a new tornado siren after the siren on E. Ryan Road failed during a recent test.

A tornado siren at 2651 E. Ryan Road failed to operate during a recent test of the city's warning system, which led the Oak Creek Common Council to authorize spending for a new one.

The city will replace the siren, which was installed in 1996, for an estimated $34,290, according to a report to council members. Aldermen approved the measure unanimously Tuesday.

Oak Creek has three sirens in the city. The other two are at the Oak Creek Little League complex, 7800 S. 6th St., and near

Those two sirens worked property during the test, but city officials say the same problems could come up there and plan to replace them over the next two years.

NOTE TO COMMON COUNCIL-----THESE SIRENS SHOULD LAST A LOT LONGER W/O BEING REPLACED! PLEASE RESEARCH DIFFERENT COMPANIES. THE OAK CREEK VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPT. HAD A SIREN AT HOWELL & RYAN FROM 1937 UNTIL ABOUT 1960. THANKS.
