Holland emergency warning siren purchase approvedJune 23, 2020
From Local Sources
HOLLAND — The Dubois County Council has approved the purchase of a new emergency warning siren for the Town of Holland because the current one is unrepairable.
The siren was reported out of service earlier this month.
Tammy Humbert, director of the Dubois County Emergency Management Agency, says the installation date for the new unit is unknown so it could take a few months before another siren is up and operable.
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 contact Humbert at 812-482-2202.
