Holland’s weather warning siren goes down

From Local Sources

HOLLAND — As a result of county weather warning siren testing Monday, authorities learned Holland’s siren is temporarily down.

Holland Town Board President Tom Thacker, Holland Volunteer Fire Department Chief Adam Chambers and Dubois County Emergency Management Director Tammy Humbert have jointly issued a news release encouraging all residents of Holland to be aware of the problem and to verify their emergency alert weather radios have fresh batteries.

The programmable radios issue alerts like severe weather watches and warnings for specific counties.

Local officials have notified Federal Field Services and that vendor will be inspecting the siren to determine the issue.

The local officials are additionally encouraging all Dubois County citizens to follow the same course of action because the sirens in the county “are put in place as a backup to notify residents of threatening weather that is approaching.”

Anyone with questions can contact the Dubois County EMA office at 812-482-2202.
