The Silence is Deafening… and Potentially Deadly
Depending on your generation, your perception of outdoor warning sirens is different. To some raised in the 50s and 60s, they bring back memories of the Cold War and the threat of nuclear attack. To those in the 70s to today, they announce the approach of dangerous or deadly weather. To those who live in parts of the county that experience severe weather, they are often called Tornado Sirens (and some state’s residents refer to them as “si-reens” affectionately). To some, they mean tha approach of a deadly Lahar, while to others, it means a tsunami may be approaching. But outdoor warning sirens have found their place in most American’s lives. However, since 2011, when the FCC began reassigning the radio-frequencies that were used to activate many of these sirens, communities that could not afford to upgrade to far more expensive digital sirens have had to deactivate thousands of sirens across the nation. WeatherCall Services’ Intellisiren solves this challenge affordably and reliably.
