HENDERSON, Ky. – An emergency warning siren on the City of Henderson’s system located at U.S. 41-A and South Green Street was damaged by strong winds on Saturday, Oct. 20, and is presently out of service.

Henderson Fire Chief Scott Foreman said the City is in the process of replacing the siren, which was one of the older units in the system.

“The process of replacing one can be lengthy,” he added. The City of Henderson Board of Commissioners approved emergency replacement of the siren at their regular meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 23, on the recommendation of City Manager Buzzy Newman.

Sirens in the City and County have overlapping coverage so residents in the area may be able to hear one upon activation, he said, but definitely not as distinctively as usual and perhaps not when inside a building.

Foreman suggests that in the meantime until the siren can be replaced residents rely on a weather radio when severe weather is threatening.
