Good news, everyone!
I’m pleased to announce that the Lake Murray Village area in southern Oklahoma has raised funding to install a new (to them) tornado siren! Through the volunteer firefighters over at the Lake Murray Village Volunteer Fire Division and an ongoing newsletter written by me, we managed to let the public know about the project and solicit help from the community.
The previous system was quite a bit older and a newer system was very much needed. The new system will be installed soon, and will not only have the volume and reach needed for the immediate area, but will also expand the reach to other rural residents who don’t have access to emergency storm sirens. In addition to the expanded reach, this system will be able to be automatically triggered by weather monitoring entities.
