Residents in the southwest corner of the City of Lakeville should be aware that an outdoor storm warning siren, located at County Road 70 and Laredo Avenue, is temporarily out of service.
During regular March siren tests, a problem was found within that siren. An atypical incident occurred, when small animals caused significant damage to the siren motor. The damage ruined the electronics and the siren would not respond to activation signals.
City Emergency Management officials are aware of the issue and are working with contractors to replace the warning siren. The outage is expected to last four to six week. Residents should be aware that this location is in the corner of the City and there is no outdoor overlap coverage in this area.
Residents in this area are reminded the sirens are considered to be warning devices for residents outdoors. In the case of damaging winds or a tornado, this particular siren will not sound until repairs are made. It is recommended all residents have a NOAA Weather Radio, which is available for purchase at major retailers. Weather radios programmed to your location will sound when alerted by the National Weather Service.
