Early Warning Sirens
Siren Information & PurposeThe Early Warning System sirens have been alerting Valparaiso and Center Township residents for over ten years now. There are 10 sirens altogether with 5 being in the city and 5 in the township. Each siren was strategically placed throughout the city and township so as to do the most good for the most populated areas.
The sirens for the most part are meant for folks that are outdoors and may not be listening to any news media broadcasts. They will provide an early notification to the public that there is approaching bad weather or a chemical spill incident that has just occurred. When the public hears an Early Warning Siren continually sounding, they should immediately go to a place where they can hear news broadcasts of possible life threatening events happening or that are approaching the area such as a storm.
