One Huntingburg siren out of service

From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — After recent testing Tuesday of Dubois County’s sirens, the Dubois County Emergency Management Agency has determined that the siren located next to Southridge High School is currently not in service.

The agency has notified Federal Field Services and they will be inspecting the siren and working to repair it. However, due to being at the front end of severe weather season, Huntingburg Mayor Denny Spinner, Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department Chief Scott Patberg, and Director of Dubois County EMA Tammy Humbert are encouraging all residents of Huntingburg to be aware of the problem and to verify that their National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration weather radios have fresh batteries and are ready to notify you of any severe weather coming to the area.

All schools in the Southwest Dubois County School Corporation have weather radios in each of their buildings and they are also directly notified of any warning via the Dubois County Emergency Management Agency.

All citizens of Dubois County are encouraged to have weather radios.
