As a result of the testing of the Dubois county sirens March 19, 2019, The Dubois County Emergency Management Agency have found that the siren located next to the High School in Huntingburg is currently not in service. Dubois County EMA 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 our severe weather season; Mayor Denny Spinner, City of Huntingburg; Scott Patberg, Chief of Huntingburg Fire Department; and Tammy Humbert, Director of Dubois County Emergency Management are encouraging all residents of Huntingburg to be aware of the problem and to verify that their SAME weather radios have fresh batteries and are ready to notify you of any severe weather coming to the area.
Please note that all Schools in the Southwest School Corporation have NOAA weather radios in each of their buildings and they are also directly notified of any warning via the Dubois County Emergency Management Agency. Dubois County EMA also encourages ALL citizens of Dubois County to do the same as the Sirens in the county are put in place as a back up to notify residents of threatening weather that is approaching. Sirens are not to replace your own notification process such as a NOAA weather radio.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Dubois County EMA office at 812-482-2202.
