Ashley installs new tornado siren

A new tornado siren is being installed in Ashley, Ohio to replace one that is about 60 years old.

ASHLEY, Ohio (WCMH) — The new siren, scheduled for testing on Saturday, September 5, will be linked to Delaware’s Emergency Command Center, providing immediate activation in the event of a county tornado warning. Delaware County will then have 16 tornado sirens connected to the Delaware County 9-1-1 center.

The old Civil Defense siren was about 60 years old, said Delaware County EMA and Homeland Security Director Sean Miller.

Delaware County also has a Code Red call system that automatically sends Delaware County severe weather warnings to subscribers at home and on their mobile phones.
