Out with the old WWII Siren
February 17 2020
Why do we still have this old system. I live in Darfield with no mountains surrounding me but still the siren goes off more frequently than I would like. Especially when the entire community is asleep. My toddler runs scared of the sound and if it bothers them than I’m sure it affects most families. I understand that the sirens are effective but that also depends on which way the wind is blowing. So I too think that with all the technology available to us surely it’s time for change.
