As a result of Tuesday’s statewide tornado testing emergency officials in Dubois County have found that the Severe Weather Warning siren in Haysville is currently out of service.

Haysville Fire Chief John Fuhrman in a release through the Dubois County Emergency Management Agency says officials have notified Federal Field Services who will be inspecting the siren and will work to repair it.

Fuhrman says with the start of the severe weather season however; he along with Dubois County Emergency Management Director Tammy Humbert are encouraging all residents of Haysville to be aware of the problem and to verify that their SAME weather radios have fresh batteries and are ready to provide notification should any severe weather come to the area.

Fuhrman and Humbert also encourage 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.

They say Sirens are not intended to wake you, be heard inside your homes or replace your own notification process such as a NOAA weather radios.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Dubois County EMA office at 812-482-2202.
