Holland remains without siren

From Local Sources

HOLLAND — Keep those weather-warning radios handy, especially if you live in Holland.

Tammy Humbert, director of the Dubois County Emergency Management Agency, says Holland’s siren is out of service, with work ongoing to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Because the county is in the middle of severe weather season, Humbert, Holland Town Council President Tom Thacker and Holland Volunteer Fire Department Chief Adam Chambers are encouraging Holland residents to ensure their weather-warning radios have fresh batteries and are in good working order.

Additionally, all county residents have been encouraged to do the same because the warning sirens are in place to serve as a backup to notify residents about approaching threatening weather. They are not to replace an individual’s own notification process that may include NOAA weather radios or telephone, text or email notifications.

Anyone with questions can call Humbert at 812-482-2202.
