Storm Siren work continues

The Laclede County Emergency Management Director gave a report to the County Commission on Tuesday. Included in his report, Director Randy Rowe said that they are still working on an issue they are having with the storm siren at Phillipsburg. Rowe said that they moved the storm siren closer to City Hall about 3 years ago and it had been working, but recently there has been an issue….


Rowe said they have been investigating the area to see if there are new buildings that might obstruct the signal getting to the Phillipsburg siren, but that doesn’t appear to be the problem. Rowe said until the issue is resolved they will continue to rely on law enforcement and OEM to get alerts to the citizens of Phillipsburg.
