Alma Warning Alarm

Alma is erecting a 2nd warning siren to alert residents of impending severe storms and other emergency situations.

A siren to be located adjacent to the privately- owned county annex property on 2nd Street in Alma will complement another siren located at Beach Harbor Park.

The city council approved buying a 128-decibel low frequency siren and related equipment from Federal Warning Systems, Inc., of Rochester, Minn., for $13,050.

Emergency Communication Systems, Inc., of Freedom, Wis., was hired for $5,450 to install the system and supply a 55-foot pole and battery packs.

The city council said funds spent on the siren project were budgeted for 2017.
