Storm siren status update

Ferdinand Town Manager Chris James here.  The town's two emergency storm sirens were tested this morning as part of a routine maintenance test- there was no actual emergency. This was done as a follow up to the normal first day of the month test.  Residents heard the 1st Street alarm trigger, however the 18th Street siren did not sound off, which was the same situation with our July 1st test.  Until further notice, the 18th Street siren is NOT operational!! The town is aware of this and is working with EMA, Dispatch and all other necessary parties to remedy this situation.  With severe weather forecast to move in later tonight, we are asking all residents, but especially those on the north side of town to be extra-vigilant in monitoring our weather.
