Dubois siren currently out of service

By Herald Staff

DUBOIS — The siren in Dubois is currently out of service.

Dubois Volunteer Fire Department Chief Steve Kalb and Dubois County Emergency Management Director Tammy Humbert are encouraging all Dubois residents to be aware of the problem and to verify that their SAME weather radios have fresh batteries and are ready to notify them of any severe weather coming to the area.

All citizens of Dubois County are encouraged to do the same as the sirens in the county are put in place as a backup only to notify residents outside of threatening weather that is approaching. Sirens are not to replace your own notification process such as a NOAA weather radios.

Kalb and Humbert advise that it is currently severe weather season and severe weather is expected Monday and Tuesday. "Please have a plan in place in the event that severe weather does effect Dubois County," they said.

If you have any questions, contact the Dubois County EMA office at 812-482-2202.
